Museu de L'Almodí

The ‘Museu de l’almodi’ is divided into two sections, archaeology and Fine arts. The first one, besides several ceramic objects, has a masculine Iberian bust dating back to the IV century B.C. An Arabic sink, unique in its genre because of its decorative human and animal motifs, funeral inscriptions and fragments of Roman marble sculptures complete the collection. In the Fine arts section, the emphasis is on painting, with the altarpiece of the ‘Transfiguración’ and the ‘tabla de Saint Nicholas y San Dionysus’, three altarpieces by Cristóbal Llorenç and another three by José de Ribera, from the XVII century. Visitors can also find the famous portrait of Philip V, hung upside down for being the monarch who decreed that the villa be destroyed by fire.
