Archaeological Museum of Seville
Situated in a beautiful neo-renaissance building built for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, the Archaeological Museum is a wonderful way of discovering the history of Seville from Pre-history to the Modern Age.
The Museum at a Glance
Located in the beautiful María Luisa Park, this building is split into three levels, which are visited in chronological order. The basement houses the oldest period, with ceramic, stone, and copper elements from the area's inhabitants during the pre-historic period.
The first floor is home to the museum's pièce de résistence, the El Carambolo hoard of treasure; a mysterious collection of gold and ceramic pieces that are more than 2,700 years old.
The final part of the museum includes numerous Roman ruins, mainly from Italica, including sculptures, mosaics, and ceramics.
