For the Councilor for Artistic Education, Paco García, this meeting “comes to complete the list of activities, cultural weeks and training sessions that the Music Conservatory carries out throughout the course. In addition, this year, the participants and their companions will be able to enjoy guided tours of our city organized by Turisme Llíria both on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 June”.

“From the Department we are committed to the fusion of music and heritage, symbols of our city’s identity that accompany us as the Creative City of Music in the UNESCO network”, he added.

New prizes

The City Council of Llíria has endowed the first prizes of the 5th and 6th years of professional education and the first prizes of the two levels corresponding to higher education with a recital to be performed within the cultural agenda of the town. Likewise, the Unió Musical and the Banda Primitiva de Llíria will award a special prize to the applicant belonging to the society that obtains the highest score in the contest by performing a recital or concert within the cultural program of each entity.

Along the same lines, in this edition the Professional Conservatory of Music of Llíria has created a special prize for the student who obtains the highest score in the contest. The prize consists of a complete set of material for the instrument and sheet music.

The organization also points out that this year the number of collaborating brands has increased, which has allowed for an improvement in the number of prizes awarded. All the awards sponsored by these companies consist of material for the clarinet as well as sheet music, reeds, mouthpieces, kites and accessories for the instrument.

The director of the Llíria Conservatory, Amparo Esteve, has pointed out that this new edition of the National Clarinet Competition “places our city, the educational center and its musical teachings at the forefront of the Valencian music scene, where they will be able to meet clarinettists from all over Spain”. For this reason, he has encouraged “all clarinet students to come, participate in this educational contest and enjoy a city full of music and emblematic places such as Llíria”.


Ciudad romana. S. I – II d.C. declarado BIC

Este espacio arqueológico conserva uno de los conjuntos arquitectónicos relacionados con el mundo funerario, más importantes de la antigua provincia romana de Hispania.

Estos monumentos funerarios formaban parte de la antigua necrópolis de Edeta. Se conservan los restos de dos monumentos funerarios dispuestos junto con una de las principales vías de la entrada a la ciudad romana.

Junto a la vía necrópolis, se encuentra el umbral de la entrada al recinto funerario constituido por cuatro losas con la inscripción latina P. CLODIVS EVTYCHVS SIBI ET CLODIAE NATALI VXORI CARISSIMAE que significa “P. Clodio Eutico lo construyó para sí y para Clodia Natalia, su amadísima esposa”.

El primer monumento tiene la fachada decorada con pilastras acanaladas y una cámara interior con dos bancos corridos donde se celebraban las fiestas de los parientes. El segundo monumento pertenece al grupo de sepulcros turriformes y conserva una losa con un orificio central para realizar las libaciones que tapa una cavidad cúbica donde se depositaban las incineraciones y los ajuares funerarios.

Un audiovisual dedicado al mundo funerario romano puede contemplarse en una de las salas de este sótano arqueológico.
