Det är en riktig pärla. En guidad visning med muséeföreningens ordföranden var kolossalt givande. Han berättade saker som var helt okända för oss trots att vi bott här länge. TACK!

Jättetrevligt museum med olika avdelningar - skola från förr, djur o natur, sjöfart, tåghistoria, golfhistoria i Falsterbo, äldre historia från platsen, gammal affär, gammal fotoatelje m gamla foton, arkitektritade hus i Falsterbo mm. Mycket väl värt ett besök! Vi var två föräldrar o en 14-åring.

Inne på museet berättas det om falsterbo halvöns historia. Inne på kiosken serveras det god glass och fika, personalen är väldigt effektiv och trevlig

Härligt museum men tyvärr hade kiosk-ägarna inte öppet. Man stänger visst så fort sommargästerna lämnar. Synd för många ville äta glass när det var 26 grader i augusti.

Royal Palace of Olite

The Palace of the Kings of Navarre of Olite was one of the seats of the Court of the Kingdom of Navarre, since the reign of Charles III 'the Noble' until its conquest by Castile (1512). The fortification is both castle and palace, although it was built more like a courtier building to fulfill a military function.

On an ancient Roman fortification was built during the reign of Sancho VII of Navarre (13th century) and extended by his successors Theobald I and Theobald II, which the latter was is installed in the palace in 1269 and there he signed the consent letter for the wedding of Blanche of Artois with his brother Henry I of Navarre, who in turn, Henry I since 1271 used the palace as a temporary residence. This ancient area is known as the Old Palace.

Then the palace was housing the Navarrese court from the 14th until 16th centuries, Since the annexation (integration) of the kingdom of Navarre for the Crown of Castile in 1512 began the decline of the castle and therefore its practically neglect and deterioration. At that time it was an official residence for the Viceroys of Navarre.

In 1813 Navarrese guerrilla fighter Espoz y Mina during the Napoleonic French Invasion burned the palace with the aim to French could not make forts in it, which almost brought in ruin. It is since 1937 when architects José and Javier Yarnoz Larrosa began the rehabilitation (except the non-damaged church) for the castle palace, giving it back its original appearance and see today. The restoration work was completed in 1967 and was paid by the Foral Government of Navarre.
