This archaeology Museum is located near Plaza de Mina, on the ground floor, really worth a look. Some excellent glassware and jewellery are highlights and there is a good collection of amphorae as you would expect from an historic gate.

This is a lovely museum and free! We spent a long time admiring the large collection of paintings by Zubaran. We also saw some fine Murillos including the painting of the Mystical Marriage of Sant Caterina,his last work. The lower floor has some fabulous jewellery and archaeological finds showing the long history of this city.

The archeological museum is perfect in size, scope and editing. Just enough to give you the sense of the pre-history, the Phoenician and Roman city, primarily using exquisite jewellery, glassware, pottery and delightful statuettes. Not to be missed.

No English explanations on exhibits but English... More

We visited last week and found the museum really interesting. A short guide is available in Engish and some of the rooms have translations of the main commentary however more of these would enhance the experience for those of us very interested in what we were viewing. Lots of ancient finds from Europe's oldest city and a variety of interesting... More
