The Spanish bandoleros will always be romantic figures. This museum doesn't really dispel that illusion but it goes some way to showing who the people behind the legends really were. Much of it is written word and the information could just as easily have been...More

Quite amazing what has been gathered together on the subject of bandits and the Spanish romantic fascination with the subject - similar to the British interest in Smugglers!

A small museum off the Main Street devoted to the history of the local bandits. Crammed full of memorabilia and artefacts. Lots of written information in several languages. There is also a small gift shop. Entrance fee €3.5. We were the only visitors when we...More

History in photos, mannequins, costumes, weapons and personal histories, it is not free (as stated on the posters outside) but its only €2 each, children from about 6 will probably find it interesting too.More

This was an old fashioned museum with a bit too much straightforward written information involved compared to the more interactive things we are more used to these days. However, it was really interesting to learn more about the bandits and the history of the area...More

An inexpensive way to pass an hour being educated. I consider this museum an important addition to things to see because most people probably won't have a clue about the bandits of the era. The cost was low for the owners labour of love and...More

not a large museum and many of the items were only reproductions although the actual history and stories of the bandits were interesting. If you are passing drop in but not worth going out of your way to visit it.

Not stuffy and a lot of fun. Lots of English explanations. After Napoleon upset the local balance of power the bad guys seemed to have filled it perfectly. Lots of pictures some quite grizzly. Recommend.
