Archaeological Hall of the Corona and El Pesadero
The archaeological classroom of the La Corona / El Pesadero site has a main room of 112 m2 and an annex area, completely fenced, of 150 m2.
It is distributed in two main areas; In the interior room, after the reception and information space, a wide view of the site is offered by means of graphic information, going through the successive occupations of the town, and emphasizing both the historical synthesis and the thematic aspects of each stage. All these elements are articulated around a central model that represents the plan of the archaeological excavation and the different moments of habitation of the site.
In the exterior space, which is accessed from the room, there are different constructions that reproduce the environments that happened during the life of the settlement. On the one hand, a house and a small altar from the occupation of the First Iron Age are recreated, later continuing with the reconstruction of much of the Roman pottery complex, with a building structured in three rooms, where the process followed can be analyzed in the manufacture of construction materials. The tour ends with the two ovens exhumed in this pottery, the entire itinerary being assisted with additional information arranged on simple posters.
