Gava Archaeological Park
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 sites in our country, exploitation began about 6,000 years ago, in the Neolithic period, and lasted for a millennium. These are the oldest gallery mines in Europe and the only ones dedicated to the extraction of variscite, a mineral used to make ornaments that were exchanged in complex networks that spanned the western Mediterranean. Unique remains have also been recovered, such as the trepanned skull and the Venus of Gavà.
The Archaeological Park, created with the aim of preserving and disseminating this exceptional mining site, offers a unique experience in which the mining structures coexist with a modern museographic presentation, where the visitor can capture the magnitude of the site and learn, at the same time, the way of life and the beliefs of our ancestors through advanced audiovisual and multimedia elements. Many of the original pieces can be visited at the Gavà Museum.
