Not the largest excavated historical site but one certainly packed with many interesting artefacts. Unfortunately the "grave-robbers" got there before the historians though there is still a great deal of interest visiting the "cellar" holding the remains of citizens past. Some small "tombs" set into...More

This museum will take you about an hour to go through--maybe not even that long. It is a small place, preserving sections of the Punic wall and containing some eerie looking tombs. There was a gladiator exhibit there that kids might find interesting. If you...More

Truth to tell, there is not much more here than a section of the Punic Wall to see, but it is presented very well, with lots of information, in both Spanish and English. Fascinating.

A small museum which will take about an hour and costs €3.50. The initial video presentation was interesting, also seeing the remains of the original city wall and crypt built by the Carthaginians. However the museum has few other references to that period in history...More

I really enjoyed visiting this little museum. The walls itself are amazing and so is the little crypt built next to it. The video is very informative. One of the things I missed here was some more information on the Cartagans. Sure there was the...More

This is an interesting addition to the day's tour of ruins, presenting a different viewpoint from the forum or theatre. Nice temporary exhbition about gladiators, including facts of which we were unaware. Loved the recreation of the 'tomb' area.

It’s directly opposite the Hotel Los Habaneros - a short walk from the rail or bus station. It has a very distinctive facade (meant to suggest the shape and line of the Wall).
