Museo Civico [Civic Museum]

The Museum was founded in 1982. It displays archaeological findings dating from the lower Palaeolithic Age to the Middle Ages, and collections of mineral and zoological fossils from the local territory. Noteworthy in the paleontological section is the fossilised whale skeleton. The section dedicated to ethnography contains a collection of African objects.
