Archaeological Park of Gavà
How did they live, how were our ancestors from 6,000 years ago? Live the experience in an innovative archaeological expedition in this unique site in Europe. A trip to prehistory, to understand the past and the present.
Considered one of the most important and unique heritage of our country, the exploitation began 6,000 years ago, in the Neolithic, and will take a millennium. These are the oldest gallery mines in Europe and the only ones dedicated to the extraction of variscite, a mineral with which ornaments were made that were exchanged in complex networks that covered the western Mediterranean. Singular remains such as the trepanned skull and the Venus de Gavà have also been recovered.
The Archaeological Park, created with the aim of preserving and disseminating this exceptional mining site, proposes a unique experience in which the mining structures coexist with a modern museological presentation, where the visitor can capture the magnitude of the deposit and know, at the same time, the life system and beliefs of our ancestors through advanced audiovisual and multimedia elements. A good part of the original pieces can be visited in the Gavà Museum.
