The Ethnological Museum is found within the town, at the highest point of the mountain, in the Palacio de los Duques de Híjar. It was originally a Moorish castle that defended the town and it and all of its territory were under the control of the Castillo de L’Alcalaten.

 

It is divided into 4 parts:
