Archaeological Museum

A top-notch museum of its type.

Established in 1897 as one of Spain's first archaeological museums, it houses a wideranging collection of artifacts and other ancient treasures from different eras and cultures which have inhabited this region, its seven halls covering primarily the Paeleolithic through Moorish Al-Andalus. Especially significant are the ceramics, tools, and weapons of various eras, as well as an interesting array of tombstones from ancient Roman Hispania. The building housing the museum is also of interest, the handsome 16th-century Casa de Castril (Carrera del Darro 43), once home to the family of Ferdinand and Isabella's secretary Hernando de Zafra and considered one of the finest examples of the Granada Renaissance.
