Iberians and Romans

Located in a 14th-century Mudéjar-style house, the museum has been operating since 1973.

It contains discoveries from the Iberian and Roman periods, found in Úbeda’s archaeological sites, including lions, Roman tombstones and large Iberian mills. In the Iberian room, the ceramic votive offerings from Santa Elena and Castellar are of particular interest.
