  • Is well worth a lengthy visit to this site. Well structured, well done and quite appealing. It is impossible not to fall in love for the beautiful Lady of Elx.

  • Shared between the Traspalacio (modern structure) and the Palace of Altamira (the fortress), this Museum presents archaeological pieces that extend from the Neolithic to late Antiquity, by 4000 BCE until the 7th-8th century after J. C. Although this is not our area of expertise, we took great pleasure to browse through the many rooms, the corridors, the Court of arms, the Alcazar of the image and the Dungeon where a replica of the famous "Dama de Elche" (the original being in Madrid, I believe) is exposed. Ranked well of Cultural interest since March 1, 1962.

  • It is very good to learn about the history of Elche. It is divided into two buildings. The modern with the beginning of the story and then connects with the Palacio de Altamira, where the most recent history is exposed. Also you can climb to the top of the Palace and enjoy the views.

  • Very interesting. But it is a shame you should go to Madrid to see the real Lady of Elche. There is no better site than this museum to locate it
