Open-air Museum Tefia Ecumuseo la Alcogida



Here in Tefia you find an ancient village has been faithfully restored . The houses are made of natural stone and its walls were plastered with lime. The roofs are covered with bricks , which were made from a blend of earth , straw and water.

Since no modern tools have been used in the restoration , it becomes clear how the people lived here hundreds of years ago .

With each rain dissolves some of the clay from the roof tiles so that the walls must be painted every year again.

The open-air museum consists of seven houses . It is the upscale property , as well as families of simple peasant houses.

These buildings were inhabited until the 70s and mid 90s were restored by the municipality. They are named after their former owners . In the houses today the craftsmanship and the time of his life are illustrated.

Opening times : Tuesday to Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM
