The House of Culture of Xàbia is located in the old town of the town, specifically in Plaça de Baix, 6, at the foot of the Town Hall. Its building is relatively new, although the place it occupies has a great history.
Next you have an index with all the points that we are going to deal with.
The current building was built in 2003, but the site it occupies had great historical relevance since it was the site of the "Casa del Mayorazgo or Codol" (more information in this link), belonging to the wealthy Bas family.
Later, it became known as Committee House, because the Republican Committee of Xàbia was installed in it during the years 36-37. After the Civil War it became the headquarters of the Phalanx, name by which the house was known until the construction of the Culture House. The Falange House began to be demolished in 2001 to give rise, two years later, to the current House of Culture.
A highlight of the old building was the heraldic shield that reigned over the upper part of the facade belonging to the Bas family, the first owner of this house.
The House is built on a plot of 283,88 square meters. In the archaeological excavation that preceded the works, a rich set of ceramic materials from the XNUMXth / XNUMXth centuries was found.
These remains are kept in the Soler Blasco Municipal Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum. The House of Culture, as such, was inaugurated on April 24, 2003.
