The Carambolo treasure is an exceptional selection of items in which the excellent quality of the raw materials is on a par with the skill of the goldsmiths who created them.

This outstanding series of gold articles dates from around 650 B.C., and is formed by 16 rectangular plates, two breastpieces or pendants, a necklace and two bracelets. It was found by chance in 1958, during the refurbishment of a building in the town of Camas (Seville).

The items were hidden inside an oval structure which also contained numerous animal bones and ceramics, indicating that it may have been a place of worship, or used for rituals. There are currently several interpretations regarding the purpose of these pieces, including ornamentation for priests or sacred bulls.
