Our itinerary focuses on a discussion of the significance of the exhibits selected by us. Our careful choice of artifacts from the vast collection in the Museum includes examples of Prehistoric artistic expression, Iberian sculptures, magnificent Visigothic gold crowns, and exquisite ivory carvings from the Middle Ages. ...Description continued below
