For 1€ an absolute must. Beautifully crafted models portray the history of the area alongside examples of machinery and a lifesize straw donkey. Situated in the old town hall with a courtyard in the centre. Most descriptions in Spanish but visually very clear.

Entrance to this museum cost one Euro and was well worth it. Although there is not much in English or any other language, the exhibits are well laid out and gave a great insight into the struggles of the normal Spanish rural people years ago. I particularly thought the English translation of conversations with rural peasants telling their story, in one part of the museum were excellent and that alone was worth the one Euro entrance fee

The Museo Historico-Etnologico is a very interesting place to visit. One can see how people in the town lived in the past and there are many household utensils that are exhibited. There is an interesting patio too. One cannot understand the present unless one understands the past and this is one of the jobs that this museum does.

Located in the old Town Hall building, this charming little museum is a gem. Entrance is only 1 euro. There are many fascinating displays depicting life in years gone by and lots of information (although not all in English). You certainly get a clear insight into the history of this area. The quality of the displays is very good.
Highly recommended.
