Centro Instructivo Musical


This centenarian institution in the heart of the Benimaclet barrio doesn't look much with its big, bare interior, but in many ways it's the soul of the community and has been a generating force for the area's wave of alternative and sustainable cultural projects. A place for art exhibitions, music and dance classes, concerts or just a beer, chat and a game of pool or chess, it's worth dropping by to see what's on.
