The town has six casales falleros, for the different Fallas. Silla has different cultural associations. Because of the great immigration of Andalusian people in the 1960s, Silla has got a Casa de Andalucia.
In Silla there is a very important local theater school. Founded in 1985, it is one of the first drama schools in the area.
The etymology of Silla is not known for certain. Some say that it comes from the Arabic Sila, others say from Latin, and still others from Catalan meaning "the island". Among these three theories, the most commonly accepted one is that it comes from Latin, as it has been proved that there was a Roman cellar where the town is situated now.
