  • I am Andalusian and I like a lot of the history of any place in the world. He was eager to visit this Museum, to start just go up the ramp on one of the banners an allusion to the term should reconquest that found me not correct or appropriate. Promised to the beginning of the second floor, in a video that I thought it was good (with some inappropriate comments) briefly shows something of the Muslim invasion and ends in the defeat at Alarcos leaving an Alfonso VIII angry and wanting revenge. We follow franked by details of armament and equipment of both vandos and reached the end... and the battle?... There is no audio-visual... There is one kind of a defeat but of what is the Museum... nothing... at the end we saw a touch table that explains the movement of troops. The thing is not there, leaving towards the homage Tower there is a phrase in the wall of Erasmo de Rotterdam: "the most disadvantageous peace is better than the most just war"? We went into another room where another big screen hardly seen projected an audiovisual presentation that speaks of the consequences of the wars. ??? I have gone to see a Museum of a battle that I've hardly seen anything and they wanted me to give a lesson of morality... for what purpose? for me it feel wrong by going to see it? Went very documented and knew much of that battle, since both sides... no one has the right to interpret historical fact with a mindset of hundreds of centuries later, they should only show it as objectively as possible and that each draw their conclusions, history is history and cannot be changed. If you want to make a museum to peace which do so, I find it very well but not with the name of the battle of Navas de Tolosa. I was very angry and embarrassed as Andalusian that my community has done something so incongruous and so lack of information on the subject.

  • It is interesting to be able to learn more about an important battle. Perfect location next to place where developed such a battle. For me, it was a pleasant visit.

  • On the eve of the day of San Jose, we move to the municipality of Santa Elena for the Museum and las Navas, spot where took place the battle between Christian armies and the Almohads hosts. Was a hit of the Group hire a guide, well documented and with a great professional charm which filled and clarified the notes that we had collected from the network. The day, preparing the start of the spring, was magnificent, clear and bright, with excellent views of the Plains and the greenness of the field. We began a linear March towards the settlement of the Christian camp (about 9 km., roundtrip), with every little detail Guide and on how the battle was developing between explanations of the flora of the area. The best views are offered from the settlement of the Christian camp, where the spring and the imaginary echo of the battle made a perfect symbiosis.

  • Very well musealized and highly recommended for you to go about. I never saw narrated a medieval battle in the same way in a museum. Offering inside are not large archaeological remains, or great views. Inside lives history, specifically a very well-told story. Where can we learn a little of the military strategy of the time, of the different House nobles, the propaganda of the middle ages, wars, etc. And all that with the utmost respect and sensitivity, low perspective and the tools that give us 21ST century.

  • Do you know that the evil called reconquista occurred by the anxieties of Christians as well as Muslims live?, that the feudal system was terrible, while in Al-Andalus tied dogs with sausages. That the Miramamolín wasn't a radical Islamic I sojuzgo to all the Muslim kingdoms, to impose his vision more orthodox islam, but a ruling unfairly attacked by the evil Christian Kings. about the battle?... less bad that he was going with the lesson learned, because I have not heard me nothing... ah that Yes, they have at their disposal a wonderful multimedia for a few minutes, on the current conflicts... what that has to do with the battle? What battle?...

  • A museum that presents a historical view of society and the most important conflict in the reconquista. Be made on lack of archaeological inventories but have good replicas that you place at the historical moment. The Museum staff offers a complete guide of the Museum with impeccable care.
