  • Well worth a visit, very interesting place of the history of Villena, the gold is a must see, the gentleman who did a tour with us had little english, but was amazing at telling the stories. Children enjoyed it too
  • A highly recommended place to visit. It is an archaeological museum to how many cities can be found. The interesting thing about this museum is called treasure of Villena what was found in the year 1963. The girl who we attended gave us an incredible explanation. It first puts us a movie of the node from the period which lasts 2 minutes. then the explanation that is giving how found the treasure and the people who participated. You explained about a photograph of the time featuring characters and children who were photographed at the time of the finding. Then he opens the closet where the pieces of gold and explains in great detail each one of the pieces of who it could be and so that they could be used. We were delighted

  • Which last the Villena treasure! The second largest of the bronze age after the gold found in the tombs of Mycenae. This treasure gives an archaeological quality absolutely brutal environment. As Golden as the same carats. What a shame that is not better known internationally and will allow the municipality to develop a tourism better exploiting the Iberian settlements in the area
