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!

This was a really nice stop in our visit. It has small but really interesting collections of Archaeological, Ethnography and Fine Arts (including sketches of Picasso, an El Greco and a Miró). The big highlight is the very well preserved Islamic cistern - Aljibe. When...More
