The Cordoba Archaeological Museum houses a wide-ranging collection from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages.
It has an important section dedicated to prehistory and local archaeology, with items from Iberian, Roman and Visigoth cultures. Also of interest are Islamic, Mudéjar, Gothic, and Renaissance pieces. Highlights include the Iberian Lion of Nueva Carteya and the Roman sculpture of the god Mithra, both of which are of outstanding historic and artistic value. The recent extension works in the museum have uncovered the largest theatre in Roman Hispania, which is now included into the visit.
