interesting museum

Small beautiful building, I was nicely surprised. Interesting museum about southwest writing, related to Phoenician writing.

A fascinating museum containing scripts on stone, 2500 years old in a unique ancient language.

We had heard about SouthWestern Script, an ancient writing, from 500 years before Christ, similar to Phoenician but unique to the Lusitanians. This little museum, hidden in the back streets of Almodôvar is more than worth a visit. We do speak Portuguese, which helped as we had a lovely explanation from the young woman looking after the museum, but I suspect she would have helped us in English if we asked. She explained that the stones are mostly tombstones with engravings of the names of those inside, and showed us an “ alphabet” stone, a stone that was a practice for the alphabet for a student, that unlocked the key to the script, which is similar to Phoenician. The museum is free, there are two floors and the attendant opened the door at the top so we could go out and look across at the Amovôdar rooftops. Well worth a visit...We were delighted to find this gem.
