The Municipal Museum
The Municipal Museum of Archidona, created by the City Hall of Archidona, aims to contribute to the recognition, protection, research and dissemination of historical and cultural identity of Archidona. Their existence answers the Heritage Act of the Andalusian Government of 1991, which highlights the mission of local councils to enhance and publicize the cultural value of the Andalusian Historical Heritage properties residing in the municipality. In the specific case of Archidona, this Act adds the Declaration of the City as a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1980.
Besides conserve, research and display goods that are forming their small but significant collection, the museum added a profile as Interpretation Centre in representing a synthesis, expression and decoding keys of Archidona Cultural Heritage. In this Museum local inhabitants can discover and transmit their own identity and foreigner can access to the knowledge of the history and culture of Archidona.
