The Orcelitano Casino in Orihuela is open again.


The one hundred and twenty two year old building constructed in 1887 has been re-opened in preparation for the Centenary of Miguel Hernandez next year.

The 170 members have taken great care to restore much of the building to its former glory. The facade of the building has been cleaned; the library, the Empire room, the Red and Black room, the Andalusian Patio and the staircase all look magnificent again.

PS If you visit the casino don’t forget to check out the toilets with their original statues of horsemen that came from England.
