Description

History and traditional art

The museum was created in 1973 and is located at La Yedra Castle.

It has two different sections: one focusing on History, set in the Keep, and one dedicated to Art and Popular Customs, set in an adjacent building. The History section has three rooms: the first is a chapel with a Romanesque-Byzantine Christ; in the second you can find the Arms Room, where there is an exhibition of weaponry and furniture from the 16th and 17th centuries; on the third floor, meanwhile, is the Noble Room, with 17th-century Flemish tapestries and Bargas-style cabinets from the 17th and 18th centuries. The Arts and Popular Customs section also has three rooms, with farm tools, models of olive oil mills, ceramics, etc. In one of the rooms there is a reconstruction of a typical Cazorla kitchen.
