Museum of Albarracín

VISIT

XVIII CENTURY

It is located in the old hospital of Albarracín (18th century), which was used as a district prison after the civil war and has subsequently been restored as a museum in the last decades. The remarkable history of Albarracín is portrayed in this museum, in the original rooms of the old hospital building.

The first floor is especially noteworthy: it is where the interesting Medieval history of Albarracín is depicted through valuable pieces from the Islamic period (assorted ceramics, decorated bones, metals and coins, sandstone tombstones, capital, essence flask…), as well as from the later Christian period (Albarracín law-code, coins, assorted ceramics and a reproduction of Episcopal seals, among others). Most of these pieces were recovered from the archeological excavation works in the castle. Nonetheless, it is the outstanding 11th-century ceramics collection, the main piece exhibited this season, that is above all worth mentioning

The Modern and Contemporary periods in Albarracín are depicted in its beautiful attic through various dioramas representing the resources and the way of life in the region at those times. Beside a loom, a hearth and an office, the ceramic pieces and the 16th-century town flag are also worth mentioning.

On the ground floor we find the entrance hall and the rooms where visitors get to know the region. Other rooms house important temporary exhibitions and cap off the pleasant experience of visiting this museum.
