The Ethnographic Museum of La Puebla de los Infantes is located on the corner of Calle Castillo and Calle Zahareta, a few metres from the Chapel of Santiago and just before reaching the Castle.

The ethnographic collections aim to convey to visitors the historical experience and defining features of the cultures the contents represent. The museum is intended to be a place of critical reflection on the society that preceded us, but also a place of learning and enjoyment, an important benchmark of our town.

Built by the "El Castillo" Workshop School, and inaugurated on Andalusia Day 2008, it is named after the town's honorary citizen, Francisco Atalaya Romero, "Curro el Herrero".

It houses a large collection of everyday and decorative objects from the 19th and 20th centuries, donated by residents of La Puebla de los Infantes, as well as a reconstruction of a traditional house from the town.

The Department of Tourism of the Town Council of La Puebla de los Infantes, after holding various meetings with the tourism and hospitality sector of the municipality and in order to improve the services offered to our visitors, has recruited an expert guide, who will inform all visitors about each section that makes up the Museum of Arts and Customs of the town and maintain the facilities in perfect condition.

From now on, the guided tours of the town can be arranged by calling the Tourism Department at +34 673 65 08 70.

The museum will be open every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 am to 2:00 pm. For visits from Monday to Friday, you must make an appointment at above Tourism Department phone number or via email at turismopueblainfantes@hotmail.com.

In addition to this improvement, the Town Council plans to install piped music to make the visit more enjoyable and attractive, among other initiatives such as the tourist office and the installation of signposts to sites of tourist interest as well as hiking and cycling routes.
