Right off Plaza Alta as you enter the Alcazaba. It is free admission. Roman and Visigothic artifacts. It is clean and well maintained. I spent about 30 minutes, but I could have spent 30 minutes more.

Located inside the very poor Alcazaba. However this museum is fantastic. Thankfully there are no interactive nonsensical exhibits, but plenty of very good artifacts with some decent information. Especially liked the neolithic engraved stones. Recommended.

It consists of half a dozen or so rooms, each of which covers a specific time period from pre-history to the fall of the last Moorish rulers. Some nice pieces, but a bit sparse and could do with more maps explaining context. No café, which...More
