The theatre auditorium completes the general and cultural services of Puerto Lumbreras, as well as the urban development of the city. The city has enough demographic conditions and a strategic location that make it a very important place in the region and surroundings.

The Project works on creating a meeting place with several activities, in relation to the cultural actions and leisure activities that take place in Puerto Lumbreras around Theatre, Music and Chorus and Dance groups… It is located in the city centre, and is a big complement for its cultural and touristic life.

The uses are concentrated in the same equipment, besides the theatre; there are other two pavilions for dance, music, and congress and exhibitions halls. This makes this place, a big scale cultural and service centre for the city and surroundings. The complex not only opens for shows in a reduced timetable but it is used as a global service, and it is going to be opened every day to become a reference equipment.
