Compose a hundred pieces, including pottery, iron tools, bone and stone from the excavations made by Father José Belda, priest of the “Torre de les Maçanes” and director of the Provincial Archaeological Museum of Alicante in the castle of Torre Grossa Xixona in the 1940’s. These pieces show some of the history of the people of Xixona between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
The exhibition is divided into two parts, Xixona Muslim and Xixona Gothic. We chose a dark color like the floor of the room to tie it together and distinguished from the rest of the colorful interior of the church. In addition subdued lighting was used to give more prominence to the pieces.
