Must-see museums 1

The Comic Museum

"Inaugurated in June 2007,  it is located in a building recently acquired by the Municipal Authorities and restored according to a project of the local architects Alberto Mengual and Jose Gonzalez.  There is a big space in the middle, top lighting and a metal staircase that leads to the upper floor.  You can see the comic figures painted by Elias Urbez and small alabaster windows in the facade."

It's important to get one's priorities right.  Though tempted by the opportunity to see the big space in the middle, we decided that a walk on the beach would be more improving to the soul.

Collection Museum

The Collection Museum was opened in September 1997 to hold the personal collections of the members of the Marina Alta Collectors’ Association.

Here I am in front of this collectors' paradise:

I never did discover what had been collected - the museum was closed for the siesta.
