The history of Beniarbeig as seen through the church.
After La educación en Beniarbeig 1827-2015 (2015), David José Trallero Bautista (Barbastro, 1959), resident of Beniarbeig, continues his contribution to local literature with Iglesia San Juan Bautista 1.733 (2020), in which he has wanted to collate information on the history of the church.
According to the writer himself, he didn’t want to ‘focus only on the church and the material patrimony, like paintings, but to look at all aspects of the church, seeing it as a community’. So the book has a holistic approach, it talks of the architecture, but there is also a study of the liturgy, the ordenation of mass, music and the calendar of local Christian celebrations, placing at the centre all those who have made it possible, not only priests and pastors, but also those who look after the church and its activities.
It’s a book in which photographs have a prominant role, so reading the 500 plus pages doesn’t become tedious, and exhaustive lists also make a contribution, serving to both document the thought processes of the writer, bur also satisfying the most curious. In this sense, with respect to the reading of the book, for Trallero «the book isn’t intended to be read from beginning to end, we can randomly look at the sections which most interest us, stop at a list which interests or look at the photos which remind us of the past».
Not only his previous book devoted to education but also his personal blog are irrefutable proof of his interest in the history and traditions of Beniarbeig, a passion which he himself recognises, arguing that «as you know, I wasn’t born in Beniarbeig, but since I came here I have been interested in the history of the village and the people from here, I think that curiousity for local things is one of the best ways of integrating in a place». But in answer to the question of why he chose this particular topic, he says that «it all started one day talking to Don Melchor [priest in Beniarbeig 1995 -1998] who asked me if I knew anything about the origins of the patron saint San Roque in the local fiestas ». From that moment, Trallero started to investigate and collect material relating to the church, a task without which it would be more difficult today to know about some of the curiosities, such as the fact that the person in charge of the building of the church was José Uberos, born in Ayora (Valle de Cofrentes) in 1640, and that on 22nd October 1598 there was an inquisitorial trial against Jerónimo Bueso, resident of Beniarbeig, or that in the 18th century Juan Buatista Heran Aranda was priest and was closely linked with important people of the time, like Gregorio Mayans (Oliva, 1699 – Valencia, 1781).
Although the history of the church goes back to many years before, the Iglesia San Juan Bautista 1733 makes reference to the date on which the church, dedicated to Saint John the Baptist, was finished, a homage which Trallero wanted to make as, according to him, «beyond the religious beliefs of everyone, churches should be places of tranquility and peace, which invite people to reflect on themselves ». This all encompassing willingness of churches can also been seen displayed on the front cover, where the original silhouette of the church has been modified so that the part on the right takes the form of a Nazarene, while the one on the left looks like a Muslim minaret, referring to the religion which was predominant in the village until the expulsion of the Moors in 1609.
For anyone interested in the book, the library has added some copies to its stock, and anyone who wants to buy it , it is on sale for 20€ at the two bakeries in the village.
When the contract with SINMA Ondara, the company which came to collect the rubbish in the village, finished, the Town Hall issued a tender for the contract for the service which, as required by the new law Llei de Contractes del Sector Públic de 2017, was done as an open process in which any company which meets the legal requirements can apply. As the law does not allow it to be done on the basis of negotiation, three companies were invited to make offers. Two offers were presented, one from SINMA for 81,500 euros and one from Innovia COPTALIA, for 73,636 euros, both of them plus IVA (10%).
The cheaper offer was accepted, with a contract of one year. The new company Innovia COPTALIA, which also services Orba, la Vall de Laguar and Benidoleig, will start in Beniarbeig on 1st February.
As always, the Town Hall requests the collaboration of everyone, respecting the collection times and the use of the different containers, so that the rubbish collection service might function as well as possible and so that more and more rubbish can be recycled, something very important in the fight against climate change.
The calendar for the rubbish collection for 2020 is available for everyone on the Town Hall’s webpage.
From January, the Town Hall wants to set up an intercambio for conversation in Spanish and English so that people who want to learn or improve their knowledge of one or both languages can practice it and learn about different cultures.
The sessions will be one evening a week and are aimed at people of all ages and nationalities. Anyone interested should send an email to email@example.com or contact the Town Hall. So that we can organise it as best as possible, it would be useful if you could indicate any preference for day and time.
El sábado 19 de octubre se celebró la XVIII Vuelta a Pie a Beniarbeig organizada por C.A. Capicua y por el Ayuntamiento de Beniarbeig y en la que participaron 300 personas; 50 caminantes, 120 atletas infantiles y 130corredores adultos, a los que hay que sumar los 40 voluntarios de la organización que hicieron que todo transcurriera sin ningún incidente.
A las 17:00 comenzaban las categorías infantiles con diversas pruebas, desde los 100m de los pitufos hasta los 1.200m de los cadetes, para a las 18:00 dar el disparo de salida a la carrera de 7km.

The microchip is the compulsory identification system for pets. If an authorised person (Local Policía or SEPORNA) observes an animal which doesn’t have a microchip, an immediate fine will be imposed, as required by law. The microchip should be implanted at a veterinary clinic, it is completely painless for the animal and should be done in the first three months of the animal’s life or in the month following its acquirement, whatever its age. You should know that if your dog doesn’t have a microchip and someone finds it as s stray, you can lose your pet because, having no microchip, the animal doesn’t legally belong to anyone and whoever finds it can go to a vet and have one implanted, making it legally theirs.
The microchip is placed under the skin on the animal’s neck and is similar in size to a grain of rice, but inside it contains a code with all the information not only about the owner, but also the animal itself.
What is RIVIA?
RIVIA is the Registro Informático Valenciano de Identificación del Animal. The information in the microchip is included in a database; in the database is the identification of the owner. Remember that, if there are any changes, this information should be relayed immediately to the vet so that he can update it, or you can do it yourself by calling RIVIA. If the information isn’t updated, in the case of loss of your pet, you could have trouble finding it.
So the main advantages of the microchip are the following:
Identification of pets in case of loss, whether in a fire or natural disaster, theft or the animal going missing on holiday.
Thanks to the microchip, we can access details of the owner and also the name, age, weight and other information about the pet.
A quick and simple procedure. The microchip can be implanted during a normal visit to the vet.
A safe and durable method: this system doesn’t move inside your pet’s body and is designed to be effective for at least 25 years.
It helps owners avoid a fine.
It’s one way of tackling the problem of strays.
Microchip awareness campaign for pets (dogs)
Beniarbeig, this month, wants to make its inhabitants aware that every dog should be microchipped. There are many cases of dogs being lost or going missing, sometimes because it’s fiesta time and fireworks frighten them, or because they escape when on heat or simply go astray.
During November we are carrying out an awareness campaign comprising the following:
Every time the Beniarbeig Policía Local, during their patrols in the village, see a dog, either off lead or being led correctly by the owner on lead, they will read the microchip. The information will be passed on to the town hall database where it will be automatically registered. If the animal doesn’t have a microchip, the owner will first be given a warning and will have 24 to 72 hours to hand in the health card showing the microchip number. This card must have been signed and stamped by an authorised vet and the original should be taken to the town hall, where it will be photocopied and a copy attached to the file in the town hall; if this is not done, a denuncia will be taken out against the owner in accordance with the Beniarbeig Municipal by–law pertaining to the control and ownership of animals, which, in article 34.2.G specifies: “that failure to comply with their responsibility to identify animals not considered potentially dangerous, has to be made mandatory according to article 11 of Law 4/1994, dated 8th July, of the Generalidad Valenciana, regarding the protection of pets”.
