The Alcala-Alcossebre Council suggested to the Valencian Tourism Agency that this new facility could accommodate the departmental headquarters of the Castellón Centre for the Revitalisation of Tourism.
The new Alcossebre CESAL was opened at an event attended by local residents and associations. The new building, situated in the calle Ausias March, has three floors, each of 350 sq. metres. On the ground floor there is a hall the size of which can be adapted as required; on the first floor there are four training rooms – one of them has a kitchen – and on the top floor there is an open terrace where events can be held in the open air. The building had a budget of 500,000 euros from the municipal budgets, whilst the furniture has cost 20,000 euros financed through the Diputación Provincial’s POYS. The Alcala-Alcossebre Council has already proposed to the Valencian Tourism Agency that the centre could become a departmental headquarters for the CdT de Castellón – the Castellón Centre for the Revitalisation of Tourism – accommodating courses and training initiatives.
During the opening event, the mayor Francisco Juan said that “with this building, we are meeting Alcossebre’s current need for a space of this sort. Now is the moment for associations, residents and the Council to enjoy using it”.
This new building will become the press centre for the Vuelta Ciclista a España on the 23rd August, as Alcossebre welcomes the end of that stage.
