Cultural center

The building dedicated to local associations, is located on Dr. Silvestre Street, number 1. The name of Cultural Center, arises from the new “tenants” for which it was to be occupied and that give it the characteristic of cultural , because it is the “residence” that houses the vast majority of local associations. These are considered essential elements in the local culture of Beneixama, without which, we would not have as much cultural and sports offer as the one currently enjoyed by the municipality.

This property is emblematic in our town, its facilities have hosted different uses: from the primitive Barracks of the Guardia Civil from the beginning-mid-twentieth century, through the Youth Center, Youth Home, through which generations of young people have passed, or the facilities of the post offices, (hence the building among the locals is known as “Correus”). Or until recently the headquarters of the Musical Society “La Pau”, which have formed many of the local musicians who are now part of the Music Band, until they moved their dependencies to the Polivalente Social Center, municipal building also ceded to this association and the music school, attached to the Conservatory of Villena.

At present the associations are their tenants, for it had to submit to the building to an intense reform, from the shoring and change of beams and reinforcement of the internal structure, change of windows, new furniture, as well as the new arrangement that observe The inauguration was held on December 6, 2003, coinciding with the commemorative events of the Constitution Day.
