PURULLENA CAVE MUSEUM

​Clay is a real presence in Purullena, and with it the enterprising harrd work of its people. This landscape impregnates with strength its inhabitants who have known how to pick from clay the quiet hospitality that they share with those that visit it. " La Inmaculada " cave-museum, digged out in this clayed land, offers its visitors the oportunity of admiring how the life of the inhabitants could be developed.

"This kind of " Troglodita " habitat is generalized, in our land, from the Reconquer by the Catholic Kings by the end of the XV th century. In it you can enjoy its temperature ( 18ºC ), its antiquity ( almost 600 years ), tools and original household furnishings ( and copies of them ), and even the layount and uses for which they destined their different rooms throughout their history.
