  • Of private initiative, belongs to slate quarry, where fossils have been found. Mr. Valerio (owner of the quarry) and his wife (Professor of Earth Sciences in higher education), have the merit of having preserved and maintained the paleontological study of the wealth that has come out of this fossil quarry. The species of trilobites found in the quarry are more than 20 and are about 465 million of years. In the small museum are the largest trilobites of the world patents. Feature, on the one hand by biological causes (polar Gigantism), but also some stretch by forces of geological processes. Mandatory stop on a visit to the region.

  • Worth the visit to learn more about these creatures called Trilobites. It's amazing to get out of the Museum and imagine that milhões years all the surrounding countryside was submerged.

  • The Museum is small, but contains dozens of species of trilobites. We made the visit with the help of an employee on duty at some points. We took pictures. It was exciting to see beings who have had life blown into the rock with 500 million years.
