Since xviii century it has been located in San Pedro square. Frenchmen, under the command of Marshal Bastian Sebastiani, invaded Alcantarilla before Murcia. In 1810 they burnt the big house of the government. Files disappeared, only those from xix century until now are preserved, can be found in the house Cayitas, municipal file headquarter. Until 1945 the town hall was different from now, it was a ramshackle house. In 1945 D. Juan Antonio López Hurtado, who was the mayor, ordered to knock it down and build the actual curentone. The façade was made by the architect Joaquin Vicenta, who was the best architect of Murcia at that moment. They ran out of money so they couldn´t build the tower. In the 60s, another mayor, D. Diego Riquelme, ordered to build the tower. In 1982 the new mayor ordered to reform the inside of the building what meant a real ploudeng.
