Museo Terra de Melide

Very close to Santiago: Melide

The “Terra de Melide” Museum was founded in 1978 by a group of friends interested in the study, knowledge and dissemination of the Melide region’s culture and heritage.

It is now housed in a new building erected on the site of an old pilgrim hospital, designed by the Melide architect Julio Álvarez; it fits in perfectly with its surroundings, being a good example of dialectics between the old and new.

The museum houses objects from the region’s “castros” (Celtic settlements), above all from the excavations of Castro da Graña and the Roman town of Piñeiros: Iron Age ceramics, Neolithic axes, fibulas and lance tips, etc. It also features interesting medieval material. It has an extensive and interesting ethnographic section: implements used in different trades, toys, clocks, a school, etc. Apart from all of this, it carries out a lot of research and educational work centred on the municipality of Melide’s cultural heritage.
