About the Museums


First museum: Museo Colección Vehículos Históricos
Collection composed of around 140 motorcycles and various micro cars, in perfect condition and completely original, from the 20s to the 70s. It will surprise the visitor to know which vehicles our ancestors used. The museum is located in an area of ​​500 m2. Apart from motorcycles and cars, the museum is decorated with a series of antique objects such as sewing machines, typewriters, coffee makers, telephones and radios.

Second museum: Museo Etnológico in Castell de Castells.
Castell de Castells has an Ethnographic Collection that brings together objects of various kinds related to the traditional ways of life and the rural world of the interior of the mountains of Alicante. The room where it is installed belongs to the lower floor of an old house that belonged to a prominent family of the town. It highlights the spaces for storage, mainly oil, essential product of cultivation and consumption, the kitchen-dining room as a place where they perform an important part of daily domestic activities and where they enjoyed leisure time, and the block with a manger of ample dimensions. By means of the realization of an audio that gathers part of the oral history of Castell de Castells, it has been tried to singularize a space and put it in contact with the own history of the population. Through the experiences of a woman of the locality are exposed ways of life, what to do everyday and the difficulties to survive in this environment during the first half of the twentieth century.
About Guadalest
In the interior of the Costa Blanca lies the old village of Guadalest hidden in the mountains. The unique thing about Guadalest is that the village is beautifully integrated into the rocks. The almost thousand year old village is entirely situated around the castle. The castle, simply called El Castell de Guadalest, has for years been an important defense point for the Moors against the Spaniards. Because Guadalest could only be reached through an entrance carved from the rocks and the castle had towers that protruded above the rocks like a crow's nest, it was easy to
defend.
Third museum: Museo Municipal Casa Orduña in Guadalest.
This House was built after the great earthquake of 1644 that devastated the district and ruined the castle's. It was built by the Orduña Family, an ancestry of Basque origin who had arrived at El Castell de Guadalest as trustworthy people of the Cardona, Almirantes de Aragón. D. Sancho de Cardona received in 1542 the title of Marquis of Guadalest. The Orduñas were at the service of the marquises as wardens of the fortress and governors of their states. The house was burned and looted during the War of Succession (1708). In 1756, D. Pedro Antonio Buenaventura de Orduña y García entered the Military Order of Santiago, thus obtaining access to the nobility.
