First steps towards restoration of La Orotava auditorium
Plans to bring a new lease of life to the Teobaldo Power Auditorium in La Orotava, one of the biggest projects of the year for the municipality, are moving one step closer.
The local council says it will soon open the bidding contest for a specialist to carry out an independent study of what needs to be done.
It is thought the cost of a comprehensive reform will be around four million euros, of which Tenerife Cabildo will pay 80 per cent and La Orotava the remainder.
The Mayor, Francisco Linares said the work on the auditorium “will consolidate it as the cultural reference of the north of Tenerife.”
Councillor for infrastructures, Narciso Perez said the drawing up of a master plan was imperative given the characteristics of the building and its history.
The drafting will go out to tender for 183,000 euros and will set a time limit of nine months for its completion although it is hoped it could be concluded earlier than this.
