About us


   The Centro Español La Haya is an association which was established the 1st of February 1983, although its origins start years earlier when a group of Spanish immigrants joined together in order to have a place to meet and to share their moments all together. The original name of the association is Sociedad de Trabajadores Españoles (STE) (Spaanse Arbeidersvereniging), although historically its associates refer to it like the “Spanish Center” and that is the reason with the name at the register remains just for administrative issues.
