Denia’s old fish market set for reformation

THE start of reformation works on Denia’s the old fish market is reportedly imminent.

Structural integrity tests have already been carried out on the timbers of this landmark, and soon the walls and floor will be subjected to the same inspection.

Dependent on the results of these first tests, and permission from the Directorate General of Ports, works will begin to restore project of this listed building.

Once finished, the complex will house a tourist office and a multipurpose cultural area for activities such as exhibitions.

A total of 24 workshop students of stonemasonry, electrics and plumbing will be responsible for carrying out the refurbishment.

Aged between 38 and 50, the students are participating in this initiative to help improve their training and job placement opportunities.

The plan is to restore the building, retaining its 400 square metres, and preserving the aesthetics of what is an emblematic symbol of Denia’s port area.
