Museo Etnológico de Alcalalí

In Alcalalí, the predominant economic activity has been for years derived from the primary sector. Basic crops were almonds, grapes and olives. For the transformation of these crops the mills were opened to the public.

The most important, due to its degree of activity was the Almazara owned by the Cooperativa Agrícola de San José, which was put into operation at the end of the 50's. It was located on Calle Porche, 33, Alcalalí, and the farmers of the municipality and the neighboring towns used to go to transform the grape and the olive into wine and oil.

The Almazara was without activity and was closed in 1998, although all the machinery necessary for the development of the activities that were carried out in it was preserved inside.
The City Hall rehabilitated the existing building and machinery, making it an Ethnological Museum; In addition, is attached to the Wine Route of Alicante.

Visitors can learn about the process of transformation of grapes and olives into wine and oil through explanatory brochures in different languages (Valencian, Spanish, English and German) and can see the machines with which they worked.

Opening hours: Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Entrance fee: 2€ (includes Medieval Tower and Ethnological Museum. The full collection will go to the Asociación de Jubilados de Alcalalí).
Mondays to Fridays: ask in the Town Hall (C / Major, 10) from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. or call 966 48 20 24.
