One of the best museums of its kind anywhere, Sevilleâ€™s Archaeological Museum features relics from all of the civilizations that dominated this area, from the Phoenicians and Carthaginians to the Romans and Moors. Their collection of statues and mosaics from the Roman era is quite impressive. The museum does not house any New World artifacts, which is somewhat disappointing, as Sevilla was the port of entry for Spanish ships returning from the Americas.
The Archaeological museum is located in Parque MarĂa Luisa, which is itself worth a visit. Just outside the museum, youâ€™ll find a small square known to locals as â€śparque de las palomasâ€ť or â€śpigeon park.â€ť Here, hundreds of white doves and pigeons wait for visitors to buy the little bags of food sold by vendors, and then flap and hop all over them in an attempt to get the food. Buy a bag and join the fun before or after your trip into the past at the museum.
