Museum

An interesting museum, where you can learn about the agricultural equipment of bygone times.To commemorate the not-so-distant past, a collection of objects and tools has been collected.Grouped by type, a guided and documented visit shows the kind of life lived by farming families in the area and tries to highlight the problems, the skill in making objects and, though only virtually, show what a hard life our grandparents led.Over 4.000 old implements for farming, all in working order.One of the important aspects of this collection is its great value as a historical record, since every single one of the thousand articles catalogued has remained practically unchanged, both in use and form, from mediaeval times down to our own day and can take the visitor back in time to the events that occurred long ago in the premises now used for country holidays.
