This is a very small museum with some very old (2000 years old) artefacts. 1 euro entry fee. Rainy day activity.

Nice way to spend an hour or so, gives an insight into the history of the area. When we visited a small exhibition of local art was on view upstairs -- well worth a visit. Can be found close to the clock tower.

Of you enjoy history, this is for you. Quite small. No entrance fee, and the staff wouldn't take a contribution, so bought a really interesting book

Tucked away in a quiet area uphill, this is a nice museum that is small but interesting. Only €1 to get in, so well worth a look. Well laid out and very friendly and helpful staff.

Visited during one of our many trips to the old part of the town. We were looking for something akin to what we would expect of a museum in one of the Greek Island or in one of Spain's smaller town. Those pieces that had...More
