Mar organizes multitude of cultural activities every year.
The City Council destines great amount of resources to the
promotion of the culture and has developed a formidable work.
Throughout the year, plays and concerts take place in Theatre-Auditorium
of Roquetas de Mar. Recently the new Audience of the School
of Music of Aguadulce has been inaugurated.
Magnificent exhibitions of all types are celebrated in the
renewed exhibition halls of the zone of the Port.
The cinema occupies a prominent place in Roquetas de Mar,
with the Yelmo Cineplex Cinema, holding 13 halls, specially
dedicated to the projection of original versions. In addition,
in the nucleus of Aguadulce, the cinematographic supply is
very ample, with the Chaplin Cinemas and at summer time, we
recommend the outdoors double programs of the outside cinemas,
- Terraces of Aguadulce. In addition, our municipality has
a Bullring, with a gauging of 8,000 people. This bullring
plaza is also used as concert hall.
The Castle of Santa Ana, with its new configuration was inaugurated
in May of 2003. By its own merits, the castle has become a
dynamic element to the cultural life of Roquetas de Mar, having
lodged exhibitions of Photography and painting, holding itself
its own conference hall. The Castle is really a centre of
the culture of great beauty, located within the framework
of the Port, that along with the Audience and the Lighthouse,
forms a cultural triangle in this modern area. We recommend
to visit the area at dusk when it is particularly pleasant
to take a walk and to relax at dusk next to the sea.
The Lighthouse is another one of the emblems of Roquetas
de Mar, its long history having been recovered thanks to a
subvention of the European Union. At the moment it is an exhibition
hall, throughout the year, and every fortnight it lodges painting
exhibitions, photographs, and others.
The amphitheatre of Roquetas de Mar counts on a gauging of
700 people, and it is a charismatic place that welcomes multitude
of spectacles, like the recognized On street foot. It emphasizes
the beauty of the surroundings, being a unique site to enjoy
the outdoor activities, mainly in the summer time.
In the summer months we can enjoy the program On street foot,
that outdoors offer spectacles in the diverse nuclei of the
municipality. The event has become a very popular appointment
in the summer time, it is totally free, and it counts on a
programming including theatre, children programs, shootings,
exhibitions, and dance, among others.
In addition, the City council of Roquetas de Mar makes different
activities to promote the culture such as: writing aids, declarations
of love, photographs and many others. Exhibitions of all types
are carried out. The City Council organizes musical concerts
where the most important orchestras play, such as the Philarmonic
of Sofía, Orchestra Operates National of Kiev, etc.
Theatre representations are organized, children programs,
chat-taks about writers and other activities. The program
of the City Council of Roquetas de Mar is very complete and
it renews itself constantly.
