  • The House of Culture aims to promote and support the educational, cultural, touristic, social and ecological actions of a community: it has an important role and contributes continuously to the formation of the local population in these areas. It is a quiet and continuous work, which is often not valued by those who pass through the historical center, but plays the fundamental role of stimulating the local culture, promoting exhibitions, artistic and cultural manifestations of various artists. It is installed in a beautiful house, but it is a very simple space, destined to exchanges of experiences, ideas, discussion and production of art and the appreciation of the local culture. Recommend.

  • To see some of the work of local artists this is the best place. Mostly sculptures and art in clay.
