Monographic Museum and Punic Necropolis of Puig des Molins
MONOGRAPHIC MUSEUM AND PUNIC NECROPOLIS

In 1929 King Alfonso XIII visited the island of Ibiza. Taking advantage of this occasion, it was suggested to the monarch that the land of the necropolis of Puig des Molins should be expropriated, prior to it being declared a National Monument, and his support was requested in order to erect a new building to house the Archaeological Museum of Ibiza adjacent to the site. The king agreed to these requests and in 1930 the Museum project was drawn up and the land expropriated.

The building exhibits the remains that the following three populations have left on the islands: the Phoenicians, Punics and Romans. Its rooms house a collection of objects from the necropolis of Puig des Molins, where necklaces, bronze and lead tools, bullets, amulets and coins were found in its funeral chambers. The most significant finds include the collection of decorated ostrich eggs and, in particular, a bust of the goddess Tanit, who has become a true symbol of Ibiza.
