A journey into History

The museum takes us into the history and heritage of this city in Castile-la Mancha.

It has three very different sections: Archaeology, Fine Art and Ethnology. The first of these has items from the main Palaeolithic sites in the province. Special mention should be made of Iberian painting from Nerpio, Chinchilla de Monte-Aragón, Bienservida and Caudete. The Fine Art section is dedicated to contemporary art and offers an anthological vision of Benjamín Palencia's work. The Ethnology section, for its part, exhibits objects and utensils used by the inhabitants of this region in bygone times.
