A small museum which will take about an hour and costs €3.50. The initial video presentation was interesting, also seeing the remains of the original city wall and crypt built by the Carthaginians. However the museum has few other references to that period in history...More

This is an interesting addition to the day's tour of ruins, presenting a different viewpoint from the forum or theatre. Nice temporary exhbition about gladiators, including facts of which we were unaware. Loved the recreation of the 'tomb' area.

Response from Cambrinus | Reviewed this property |
It’s directly opposite the Hotel Los Habaneros - a short walk from the rail or bus station. It has a very distinctive facade (meant to suggest the shape and line of the Wall).
