Museo Arqueológico de Sagunto, Sagunto Archeological Museum, is an age-old institution in the province of Valencia that has attracted great historians since the 16th century on their quest for undiscovered remains of ancient civilisations.

Sagunto Archeological Museum opened with a collection of Iberian and Roman inscriptions, forming what was called Cuarto de les Pedres, or the Room of Stones. The collection of artefacts continued to grow until 1952 when a building was constructed next to Sagunto Castle, becoming the predecessor of Sagunto Archeological Museum. Today, the collection is housed in Casa del Mestre Peña, El Mestre Peña House, a site with its own story to tell, as Iberian-Roman ruins and an 11th-century Islamic cemetery have been discovered here. The museum building is a former market hall and granary, most likely built in the 14th century. Both the site itself and what’s inside will amaze you.
