The chapel of Sant Valentí was built during the second half of the 17th century. At present time, at the back of this chapel, we find the only properly Baroque altarpiece preserved in Terrassa. It is probably the only original structure with gilding, Solomonic columns, angels and plant motifs preserved from the end of the 17th century. The recesses contained images of Sant Valentí, Sant Sever, Sant Josep, Sant Julià and Sant Antoni.
