Archaeological Museum Cueva de los Siete Palacios

The eleven cabinets contain pieces from the various cultures that have passed through Almuñécar over the centuries: Egyptians, Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs.

One of the most important pieces is the Egyptian cinerary urn made of marble belonging to Pharaoh Apophis I as indicated by the seal engraved in hieroglyphics. This piece is unique in the Mediterranean and its text is the oldest written example that survives in Spain. It possibly comes from the Phoenician necropolis Laurita del Cerro de San Cristóbal and could have arrived with the Phoenicians around the 8th century BC, even though it is thought to have been manufactured in the late 17th or 16th centuries BC.
