Centro de Interpretación Patrimonial de Almería
This modern, interactive museum explains the history of Almeria city, spread over three floors, and features a large-scale relief model of the city and a five-minute high-definition film, shot mainly by drone, of Almeria’s history and main sights. The model and film offer an excellent introduction to the city for visitors - a good way to orient oneself, and to see what the city has to offer. Each floor of the museum covers a different era, with details about its most important characters, typical dress and traditional customs: the first shows Moorish Almeria, the second is Christian, and the third Contemporary (nineteenth to twenty-first century) Almeria, as told by Carmen de Burgos, also known as Colombine (women’s rights activist and Spain’s first professional journalist, born in the square in 1867). All the exhibits are in English and Spanish. The vast roof terrace, which covers one side of the square, offers superb views of Plaza Vieja itself and the Alcazaba. Located in Plaza Vieja.
