The Úbeda Archaeological Museum is devoted to Roman artefacts from Ubeda la Vieja in Jaen province, Andalucia
Ubeda Archaeoligical Museum
The Úbeda Archaeological Museum is located in a 14th century building known as Casa Mudéjar, itself worthy of a visit. The interior courtyard of the house, typical for its time, is a cool, green space that now displays two beautiful lions from Ubeda La Vieja, an ancient settlement about 15 kilometres southeast of Ubeda that was once the Roman town of Salaria.
Much of the rest of the museum is devoted to Roman artefacts from Ubeda la Vieja. One room looks at the prehistory of the area.

On the first floor, the exhibits concentrate on the Iberian period with vases and urns from the necropolis of Castellones de Ceal (Hinojares) and votive offerings from Santa Elena and Castellar.
