  • And once going to Villena us approach to this museum animated by those comments that us gives it girl of the center of reception of visitors. It is in the town hall building and there are exposed (to be an archaeological museum) remains of several discoveries made in Villena for over 50,000 years. Also has some memories of the history of the train that was at a time in that city, to which they called "buzzer". It was not discovered why... From the first tools to remains of skeletons with skull included of children and adults of those years, passing by a bust of stone of the Lady of Caudete until a model impressive of the Castle. And finally, the climax of the Museum is the history of as it was discovered the treasure of Villena. The story goes that a worker found in principle a piece and without knowing its value or its origin led to a jeweler of the town which in turn called the archaeologist of the people and little by little they discovered several pieces of 24 k gold within a buried pot. Forming a dishes of gold that is now kept in the Museum. Even the no-do famous at the time approached to Villena to record and demonstrate to all Spain the discovery that is considered one of the greatest of all Spain. It is worth visiting it.

  • It is worth investing 1 hour to see the magnificent treasure they found. It is hard to believe that so many years ago did work so elaborate with gold. Affordable price. Treasure + € 4 Castle.

  • Must-see in Villena, its Museum nestled in the medieval palace that also locates the Town Hall is a worthy place although it is small. However you can explore the history and prehistory of Villena for their rooms with incredible speed because the visit fulfills a logical and entertaining script. No doubt the star of the Crown, the treasure of Villena, representing its 11 kilos of gold, one of the hayazgos most sensational of the bronze age.
