Municipal Ethnological Museum


The Tales Ethnological Museum, declared a permanent museum collection by the Council of Culture, is in the old town centre, in one of the oldest buildings in the town and forms part of the one of the thirteen mills that the town had in the past. The museum has three floors that maintains its original layout, its structure is completely stone and its roof was rebuilt trying to reproduce the original reed and tile with loyalty to the original architecture. Also, the stairs were restored respecting their original form. On the ground floor we can visit an oil mill with two presses, the smaller one is the original from the mill and was used in a particular way to obtain oil from each harvest for the owning family; the other bigger one was acquired second hand when the mill became part of a society integrated by 24 partners. On the upper floors there is a representation of what a 19th century home would be like, as well as traditional clothing, utensils and farming implements.  All the objects form part of donations which residents of Tales once made.
