The META Ethnographic Museum is located in the center of Abbasanta within an Aragonese-style manor house, built between the late 1500’s and early 1600.
The recently restored structure still retains many original architectural decorative elements.
The museum was created by the will and the precious work carried out by the Abbasantese Archaeological Ethnographic Association with the aim of creating an exhibition of tools used in peasant and agro-pastoral daily life from the nineteenth century to the early ‘50s of the twentyeth century.
On the street front, one can still appreciate one of the few arcades of Spanish Sardinia: in the past, it was used to welcome pilgrims, travelers, and merchants for the feast of Santa Caterina during the Linen Fair, which is no longer active.
The Paleotur Cooperative offers visitors the opportunity to dive into the past through guided tours and educational workshops for children and adults from 0 to 99 years old.
