New role for Gata’s former Guardia Civil headquarters, destined to become a museum following restoration

MAKEOVER: Gata’s old Guardia Civil headquarters to become a museum credit: Gata town hall

IF all goes according to plan, Gata’s old Guardia Civil barracks will become a museum.

“Not only will this make Gata a cultural reference point, but it will be a fine example of sustainable rehabilitation and the circular economy that are so necessary in these times of climatic emergency,” municipal sources said.

Visiting Gata last February, Ruben Martinez Dalumau, Generalitat vice-president, expressed his support for restoring the now ramshackle building, one of the oldest Guardia Civil posts in Alicante province and empty for more than 10 years.

As life returns to normal the regional government is gradually resuming interrupted projects, and the Architecture and Rehabilitation department  recently confirmed that it will restore the old building, which needs a new roof as well as underpinning.
