Seville enchants

Archaeological

The first phase of construction of the Metropol Parasol revealed visible remains of much of the Roman period, from Tiberius (circa 30 AD) to the 6th century, as well as an Islamic Almohad house from the 12th and 13th centuries.

The Archaeological Museum of Seville was established at the end of the 19th century, when a public collection of antiques, most of which were taken from the Roman city of Italica, was gathered.

The museum displays the archaeological remains and explains the history of the town. It also has a room for different types of exhibitions.

The Torre del Agua Archaeological Museum contains one of the most precious examples of the heritage and cultural legacy of the civilisations that inhabited Osuna.

The Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum of La Puebla de Cazalla is located at the Hacienda la Fuenlonguilla. It used to be a traditional olive oil mill that was operational between the 19th and 20th centuries. Its floor plan is practically square with two differentiated areas.

This remarkable municipal museum is the only one of its kind in its speciality in Andalusia. It exhibits a varied and valuable collection of instruments, tools and materials used since ancient times in medicine and surgery.

This necropolis is one of the few examples of artificial copper age cave tombs, since in that period the use of dolmens was the norm. Other similar tombs have been discovered in the immediate surroundings of Lora de Estepa, Pedrera and Alameda. There are also some near Lisbon, but they are very rare. Tombs of this kind are usually excavated in clayey, limestone marls.
