First floor: The Living History of The Lagoons.
Adra’s lagoons are one of the few surviving wetlands in the southeastern region of Spain. The lagoons, its flora and fauna have been studied for its ecological importance. However, the relationship between man and the lagoons throughout history has remained practically unknown.
We invite you to stroll through the history of The Lagoons, its plants, its animals and its people.
Second floor: Phoenician and Roman Abdera.
Abdera is one of the Phoenician foundations of the Iberian Peninsula which were later city-states and under the Roman Empire obtained the status of municipalities.
A great deal of the exhibits come from the ‘Cerro de Montecristo’, plot of the old Abdera, which dates back to the 8th century BC.
