  • It has a fantastic collection of archaeology. To highlight areas in which Iberian pieces found in different parts of the province are exposed. There are some reproductions, but also really interesting originals. We entered a Saturday afternoon, and in the 2 hours we employ to walk its halls, only we met two people, so we could enjoy the Museum as if it were a private visit. The building itself is also worth a visit. Clear example of organic architecture of the 1970s, fits in perfectly with the environment and enhances the importance of the exhibited works. Natural lighting was I pleasantly surprised.

  • A place of must-see is the history of the province with a large number of unique archaeological sites. There is also a temporary exhibition that tend to be of great interest. Re-fuel at anyone who passes through the city, mandatory.
