Our entry tickets to Castillo de San Miguel included the visit here to this museum. Wear Good walking shoes as you have a Hill to climb. Not much left to see of what is left but it is very interesting. In spanish and english. The lady at the front too was very nice, ready to share information. Atmosphere was that of curiousity, history, calm and quiet as People took it all in. Impressive how they have managed to keep it together. No bathrooms available. Thank you for sharing your country's history with us. MUST SEE!!!

We didn't manage to get around to visiting the museum so my review is just about the castle. The entrance fee is cheap at 2.35 Euros (or 1.60 Euros for pensioners) and this includes the museum. The castle has been unsympathetically restored in places which is a disappointment. Like any ancient monument, which has served for various functions over the decades, it's a bit of a jumble. There's a small museum within the castle which has some Roman pots and figurines. The views from the castle are pleasant. Anyone with a mobility problem should note that many of the surfaces are very uneven and care needs to be taken when walking round the castle. Since it's so cheap to get in I would recommend visiting the castle, but only if you have time to spare.

We visited the Castillo San Miguel first and were informed our tickets would allow is entrance into this museum as well. So after the castle we took the short (5-minute) walk over the museum. It is a series of seven vaults built in Phonecian times. The floor is exposed so you can see the foundation of the building, and artifacts are displayed in glass cases. It's very interesting but tiny, unless you are a real archeology buff it will only take 10-20 minutes. Worth visiting as in conjunction with the castle.

It is very easy to find the way to the museum and if you have been to the San Miguel castle you have also payed for the entrance to this museum. You don´t even have to go on the same day. I visited the castle one day, and came back to the museum two days later and there was no problem. The museum is located in the old Roman vaults that was made to build up a forum (Square) for the city. There are some very nice artefacts found in the area and now there is information in Spanish as well as in English. Go there.

You can visit the castle and the museum with the same ticket. All for 6€. The castle has roman, moorish, and christian elements. Extremely well preserved and restored. If you're into castles then do not miss this one. The museum is small but has a decent collection of phoenician, roman, and moorish artefacts. Most of them are finds from the roman garum factory which is located very nearby...in fact, a 15 minute walk down the main castle hill. Artefacts from the castle are displayed within the numerous rooms within the castle itself. An interesting couple of hours despite the heat!

This is a good place not far from the Castillo. Visit the castle first and then stroll over to the caves. it is a small museum with a decent collection of artifacts to view. Give it 45 minutes.

Almuñécar has fantastic sights, but this one is destroyed by loud music. These are Roman caves with a special atmosphere which is spoiled by my way being blasted out full blast every minute of the day......

Although the artifacts are much older and more impressive, the history here wasn't as engaging as at the Castillo San Miguel (admission to which gets you access to this museum). I had a lot of questions about the items and the small, dark, restored building in which they are displayed, but my mediocre Spanish wasn't quite up to the task of finding the answers from either the placards or the attendant at the entrance.

Well exposed and very interesting items in a grotto from ancient times. We went there with our grandchildren, who were very impressed - and a little bit scared.

Amazing place Get the combined and cheap ticket for the castillo as well. Wow, this place is real and truly ancient. The Roman part has lovely figurines, so very human and fresh to us. Even on the official stuff history still uses works of friendship and generosity. Touching and a part of the common history of us all.
