  • The museum image very structurally the rich history of the Islands, from 5000 BC to the Romans. For those interested in the (pre) history totally worth it!

  • Splendid, as m. World archaeological ... too bad the 70% of the visitors of the island doesn't see it, as well as many other hidden beauties of the island. In summary, a world heritage site

  • Beautiful Museum in a splendid panorama and beside the beautiful church of s. Bartolomeo Holds significant historical and artistic heritage, which is surrounded by the ancient Spanish walls of 1556 also of considerable interest. Inside the path is managed clearly and allows you to follow an itinerary through time. Of particular interest are the exhibits relating to underwater finds of ancient shipwrecks, the craters in excellent condition, the ori etc. .. Even in the absence of air conditioning your open Windows on the sea offer a fresh and pleasant atmosphere of the past.
