The Archaeological Museum also known as the 'Cave of 7 Palaces' is, perhaps surprisingly, not located within a cave in Almuñécar, but instead represents the largest section of the Roman Palace. Hieroglyphics found within the 'cave' date back to the time of the reign of Pharaoh Apofis I cerca 1500 BC.

roman influence

Much Roman pottery and other Roman artifacts are also prominent in this museum. The findings of this site are relatively recent as it wasn't until the 'cave dwellers' living inside were rehoused in the 1970s that its' true origins could be learnt and better understood.


Entry for adults is 2.35 Euros and for children and senior citizens 1.60 Euros.
