Museum of Popular Tradition

LoadingAdd to My Granada

José Antonio Jiménez created this museum in a stately home built in the 19th century. It houses around 7,000 eclectic items ranging from farming implements, preserved in the cellar of the building, to a collection of old cameras, radio devices, record players and even the first telephone used in Ugíjar.

In one of the rooms, a classroom of the local school that was established here at the turn of the century, has been reconstructed displaying a wide collection of post-war toys. Another room has been made into a typical Arabian-Andalusian bedroom exhibiting period dresses and weapons.

In this museum there are also newspapers and documents of the region, and photographs and portraits of famous local people from La Alpujarra.
