This little museum is an excellent option to learn about the close relationship between the inhabitants of Santa Pola and the Sea.
The museum is located in the town’s Castle-Fortress and is divided into three sections:
1. History and Archaeology (South Wing Access): it focuses on the history of the municipality and its castle-fortress
2. Ethnography of the Sea and Fisheries (North Wing Access): The sea as a setting, the seaman in the leading role and the ship as a tool.
3. Ethnography of the Sea and Fisheries (North Wing Access): Five rooms dedicated to Music in Santa Pola and the archaeological remains of the Cap de l’Aljub Tower, the predecessor of the current Castle-Fortress. This tower, built in the 14th century, generated around it a farmhouse with a church, a bread oven and some shops to supply the soldiers and sailors, as well as to store and protect the goods against theft and inclement weather.
