CHAPI THEATER: It is dedicated to his favorite son, the composer Ruperto Chapí and it was inaugurated in 1925. The first theater on record is the Chapel of the old Hospital de la Concepción, with origins dating back to 1838. The first known theater company was the “Compañía de Árabes”, which performed in this chapel in 1842. Subsequently, the Teatro-Circo Chapí was inaugurated on June 20, 1885, a year and a half after its construction began, and it was operating almost without interruption until the summer of 1908, the year it was demolished. Definitely in 1914 a board was created with the purpose of building a new theater. The foundation stone of the Chapí Theater was laid on September 7, 1914, the Valencian architect José María Manuel Cortina having been commissioned to do the work. Finally, and after more than 11 years, the theater was inaugurated on December 5, 1925, in its current exterior form.
