Museo Arqueológico With the Archaeological Museum (1919), Aníbal González completed his personal journey through various historic styles in the Plaza de América. Since 1942, the huge neo-plateresque building has housed one of the best archaeological collections in Spain. The exhibits include pieces from the stone, bronze and iron ages, Iberian, Phoenician, Carthaginian, Greek and Roman remains as well as objects from the early Christian, Visigoth, Islamic and Gothic periods.
Museo Arqueológico Of special interest is the Treasure of El Carambolo, an extraordinary collection of fine gold jewellery from the Thartessic period which is inspired in the eastern Mediterranean culture. Including a chain with a pendant, bracelets, breast protectors and belt plates, the treasure dates from 650 BC and was part of the funerary cache for a high dignitary. Also of great value is the collection of Roman pieces which are mainly from excavations in Italica. Among them are the Mosaic of Bacchus' Cortege, the beautiful Venus of Italica, the sculptures of Mercury and Diana the Hunter, the portrait of Hadrian covered with a shield depicting the head of Medusa, etc.
