You don't expect to find a museum of such quality in a small town like Carceres, but its there. The fascinating exhibits give you a glimpse into life in this area centuries ago. Take your camera. Photos are allowed!

The small museum provides an excellent overview of the history of the town and region with some wonderful Roman, Phoenician and Visigoth relics. The jewellery was particularly impressive.

This is a nice little museum, if you are into this kind of stuff. It was recommended by the Tourist Office as a must see, but we felt that it was just OK.
