Museu Arqueológico Sevilla
The archaeological museum of Seville ('Museu Arqueológico de Sevilla') is located in the Plaza de America at the Maria Luisa Park. The magnificent building was built in 1929 for the Ibero-America exhibition by the architect Aníbal González, who also designed the other squares, parks and buildings, such as Plaza de España. The building itself is already an attraction.
The archaeological museum houses treasures found in the province, dating from prehistoric times, Roman times (including Itálica excavations) and the Medieval Moorish period. You can see the finds in chronological order during your visit. These finds are spread across three floors and 27 rooms.
Treasure of Carambolo
One highlight of the archaeological museum is in room VI, where you will find a replica of the "Treasure of Carambolo" (the original is in a secure safe). The "Treasure of Carambolo" dates from 650 BC and contains gold jewellery, gold pieces and ceramics. They were part of a sacrifice from the Iberian 'Tartessier' tribe to one of the gods.
