Silves Municipal Archaeological Museum

This museum is set up in a modern building built along the old town wall around a large reservoir tank from the 12C and 13C. The collections retrace the history of this region from the Paleolithic age. Worthy of note are the menhirs and the funerary steles from the Iron Age.
