Description

Housed in the Palacio Municipal, which sports a fine façade and Renaissance patio, the Museo Arqueológico contains two solid gold treasures dating from the Final Bronze Age (1000-800 BCE), including the Treasure of Villena. Discovered in 1963, this 70-piece set of gold objects, weighing 9kg, is one of the most extensive in Western Europe. It comprises jewels and gold bowls decorated with sea urchin motifs.
