  • Museum set in the site of the old sardine canning factory and the whole thing is devoted to this industry, in a rather haunting way which tries to reproduce the experience of working there. Oh yes and there's also a bit about the area's prehistoric past.
  • A great place to visit, a great insight into the making of the cans and the packing of millions of sardines. And it's free between 10 am and 2pm.Brilliant. ps only on a Sunday
  • Cute little museum with interesting facts about sardines. It is well made and there is an excellent restaurant next to it. Worth a visit
  • Really interesting museum to visit. There is a video to explain the whole sardine processing and it's history. Really good props. Well worth a visit and it is only €3
  • A very interesting place, the exhibition is very detailed and the way it is layed out is very easy to navigate
