An enjoyable and informative walk around underground crypts and buildings. discovered in the 80's during street works this site had been excavated and then a museum built on top. you can see the remains of several buildings and even skeletons in their graves, coffins and items found at the site can also be seen. All information is displayed in Spanish.
