The need to have currency for the weekly payment of payrolls for industry workers, required the opening of an office of the Bank of Spain in Alcoy, one of the few cases that occurred in cities that were not provincial capital. Installed in Alcoy since 1884, the Banco de España occupied different provisional headquarters until this monumental neoclassical building was built in 1927, with large columns and decorated pediments. Coinciding with the closure of these offices, in 1982, the Bank of Spain donated the building for cultural use to the Alcoy City Council, being rehabilitated for La Casa de la Cultura, the Public Library and the Municipal Archive.
Hours: Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 17:30 to 20:30.
Tickets: Free admission.
