5. Orce Prehistoric Museum
Orce has been described as the Cradle of Man in Europe. The Orce Prehistoric Museum offers a journey through the early history of the area, down to the remains of stone tools, traces of the first human settlers in Europe. They originated in the edge of a large lake now long gone, where the animals came to drink, and many of them were killed and devoured by large carnivores.
In the welcoming setting of the Palace of the Segura, a stunning example of Baroque XVI-XVII century architecture, the Museum exhibits these gems of archeology, so admired and valued by experts from around the world.
