Museo arqueológico
Description

Located in the Palace of the Children of Don Gome, the Profesor Sotomayor Archaeological Museum is an exciting cultural journey through the archeology and history of this municipality.

The archaeological site of the Villares de Andújar was made known by the archaeologist Don Manuel Sotomayor Muro, because of whom the name has been given to it.

Andujar for its privileged situation has made possible since Prehistory the uninterrupted establishment of the passage of different cultures from Iberian, Roman, Visigoth..., which have shaped our historical legacy.

Avenida de Andalucía

Descripción

 

La colección de piezas que forman el Centro de Interpretación de la Cerámica "JARDÍN DEL ALFARERO" tiene como objetivo dar a conocer la tradición alfarera de la Ciudad de Andújar desde la Edad del Bronce hasta nuestros días.

 

Esta muestra expositiva, la cual alberga más de 200 piezas de distintas características, pretende ser un espacio para la exibición, investigación, conservación y difusión de la cerámica en Andújar a lo largo de la historia, destacando la singularidad de las formas, técnicas y artistas que han hecho de este noble oficio una forma de expresión y un modo de vida que identifica al municipio isturgitano como uno de los primitivos centros de producción y comercialización de la cerámica de la península ibérica.

 

El centro cuenta con una zona expositiva, una zona audiovisual, con un video que cuenta la historia de estos oficios, cuyos orígenes se hallan en el s. V en la desaparecida ciudad de Isturgi, y una zona con una maqueta interactiva para conocer las labores que se llevaban a cano en los alfares romanos
