Friday October 12: the museum will be open.
Quinto becomes a must-see if you want to know the first mummy museum in our country. El Piquete opens the doors to move you to a past era, where the impact of the Civil War is combined with the feeling of facing life and death at the same time. Ahead!
Quinto is a municipality of the Ribera Baja del Ebro and has 2,000 inhabitants. The history of Quinto goes back more than 20 centuries back, since the Romans baptized it as “Quintus”. The Piquete (s.XV) and Mudejar style, is the most remarkable historical artistic building although there are other small constructions called “portals” that acted as customs in addition to having a defensive use. “La Casa del Cura” (16th century) is another of the buildings that we recommend to visit as it is the best example of Aragonese Renaissance palace. The gastronomy, the Ebro, the flora and the fauna … are other claims of our town that will allow you to complete a visit that is difficult to forget.
