We hadn't been to Moncarapacho for about 3 years so planned a visit. We stay in Cabanas de Tavira so it's a fair drive. Looked it up on Google etc but no information available on opening hours. Parked & followed the brown sign, then got...More

Small but well worth a visit. Loads of information and some very interesting exhibits. The building alone is well worth seeing.

This little museum tucked in the middle of Moncarapacho is a must see. The curator knows every little detail about the displays and is very patient in responding to any questions. Take time to visit the Church next to the museum which falls under the...More
