Looking at the cultural organisations in Orihuela, you'll see that they are diverse in their functions and purposes. With environmental groups, cultural organisations, leisure associations, literary associations, historical associations, research associations, sports clubs and even dining associations!
Associations in both Orihuela Costa and Orihuela are capable of providing sevices and helping you to fight for a common goal.
There are associations and organisations that have emerged as a result of local problems, as is the case with 'Ecologists in Action' (Ecologistas en Acción as they are known locally), Vertivega, Caritas Orihuela. Or they are formed to protect something that is in danger of extinction, such as the 'Association of Friends of Museums' (Asociación de Amigos de los Museos as they are known in Orihuela) or just the enjoyment of nature as is the case with the Hiking Association.
Every organisation in Orihuela is normally linked to the other related associations in the area, as is the case with many of the cultural organisations. An example is that of the 'Federation of Festivals of Moors and Christians' (Federación de Fiestas de la Reconquista de Moros y Cristianos) in Orihuela which is connected with the 'Brotherhood of Saints Justa and Rufina' (Cofradía de las Santas Justa y Rufina), both of which join forces to help organise celebrate our famous Moors and Christians festival.
The organisation 'Caritas Orihuela' offers sustenance and shelter to people who are in need of help, or anyone who is being affected by the current financial crisis.
For cultural organisations, associations or bodies are formed mainly by people who participate in them or who are partners with common interests that have to do with the ultimate goal that is promoting culture in the town.
This cultural interest can lead to organisations for cultural heritage conservation being formed, with their goal being the dissemination and promotion of culture, or simply just the enjoyment all the culture in the town.
