The Perelló Cultural Center was inaugurated recently to promote the rich cultural and ecological particularities of the town of Bani. Situated on the country’s southwest region, Bani has a rich history of great contributions to Dominican cultural. Even though the region is only 792-square kilometer, it is home to an impressive array of ecological eco-systems. Packed in this area are systems that go from desert-like conditions to lush tropical rain forests. This particular area alone has five protected ecological regions due to the diversity of the eco-systems.
The center was founded and sponsored by the Perelló family, the owners of the “Induban” company, the country’s most important coffee producer. The Perelló Cultural Center features a modern auditorium, an exhibition hall, a media center, two multi-purpose rooms, a cafeteria, an outdoor terrace, gardens, parking and administrative offices.
This modern cultural center will be home to permanent art exhibits and will provide a wide range of cultural activities. It will also have an extensive library, featuring the history of the region.
