The Department of Investments and Sustainable Public Services de Elda has begun work to recover the historic Plaza de Arriba through a deep remodeling, designed by the Eldense architect Ernest Juan, which will change the physiognomy of this important enclave of Eldense heritage and thus return it to the splendor it had in medieval times. These works are included in the ‘Elda Renace Plan’ and serve perfectly to define the spirit of this investment program launched by the Elda City Council, which is the recovery of landmarks in the city to put them in value at the same time that the quality of life of the residents of Elda is improved. In this sense, the works have begun with the perimeter fencing of the area to start executing the different parts of this project so relevant to the city, whose main attraction will be in the giant mural that will be carried out on the dividing wall of the Town Hall once the adjacent plot is integrated into the plaza.

In addition, the project has the integration of the entire space of the current street to create a differentiated area in which cultural and leisure events can take place with a separation made through steel arches with historical motifs of the city.

The works, which have an execution period of six months, have involved the direct hiring of about 20 workers, who will carry out the project tasks in different phases and differentiated places.
