It was created by the Ministerial Order of 15 January 1973, with its headquarters within the Town Hall. In 1984, it moved to the building where the Bank of Spain was installed, currently the Casa de Cultura, and has remained here ever since.
We enter the museum passing through a wrought-iron gate flanked by four red marble columns from Cabra. It covers most of the lower floor, exposing materials around the “Patio of Columns”, named so given the ten red vein marble columns. The exhibits were received from excavations carried out at the “Villa of Mithra” and “La Veleña”, fortuitous findings, surface extractions, some donations and others purchased. They have been arranged in chronological order: from Paleolithic era until current times. All are proof of the importance of Cabra and its surrounds over the history of time.
