The president of the Generalitat has inaugurated the Museum Interpretation Centre of the City of Benissa, whose space, located in the historic Contracting market, houses the history of the municipality inside. They can be found there from the cave paintings of the shelter of Pinos, through the Iberian, Roman and Moorish periods, to the arrival of one of the most important landmarks for the locality, the arrival of water, which meant a change in the economic model, from agriculture to tourism.
Mazón has declared the need to take care of the social, historical and promotional resources of this kind of initiative, and to invest in them, because they remind us of "the responsibility of our ancestors to get here". The head of the Council also wanted to insist on the fact that "this museum is proof that the multiculturalism of Marina Alta has always existed. From the Neolithic to the present day".
The Benissa Contracting market, located in the oldest part of the town, is a construction dating from the 16th century with interventions from later centuries. It is the oldest monument in the municipality and has been declared an Asset of Cultural Interest since 1982.
