Facade and inner courtyard
Aware of the scientific and artistic projection of Mr. Joan Cabré (1882-1947), this Museum has been created with the aim of commemorating and disseminating the figure of this illustrious archaeologist.
The Museum is divided into several museographic sections, each dedicated to each of the essential activities that marked its restless character.
Section I: Cabre and Rock Art
A stubborn scholar of the prehistoric painted manifestations, I elaborate magnificent reproductions, in black and white or in color, which surpass in all the synthetic simplicity of simple rubbings. The reproductions of the paintings of the Cova de la Saltadora and the Cova del Civil (Castellon), of the Levantine naturalist style, and of the Pena Escrita (Ciudad Real), of a schematic nature, are shown in this section.
Section II: Cabre and Photography.
The photography related to Joan Cabré groups three different aspects: photographs executed by Cabré himself, some of them with an important ethnographic content; photographs in which Cabré appears, always in archaeological excavations and accompanied by illustrious colleagues already deceased (Bruil, Obermaier, Alcalde del Río, Pericot, Marqués de Cerralbo, etc.), and a sample of the cameras and photographic equipment used by his own I will go.
Section III: Cabre and Archeology.
In this section part of the private collection of Joan Cabré is exposed. From the tools and bifaces of the Lower Paleolithic, to the Visigothic bronze elements, the Neolithic objects of the Bronze and Iron Ages, the Iberians and the Romans follow one another. The Iberian ex-votos deserve special mention, probably coming from the Collado de los Jardines (Jaen), a complete helmet in iron and an exceptional sword of antennas.
Section IV: Cabré and Painting.
The canvases that are exhibited are all due to his authorship, except for the portrait made by his friend F.M. Bagües. Some of the works are copies of those of renowned artists; others, on the other hand, are the fruit of their total creation.
Both these paintings and the objects that make up the preceding Sections can be shown to the public by virtue of the selfless donation made by the children and heirs of Joan Cabré.
Section V: Corral bajoaragones.
Taking advantage of the existence of the original corral of the headquarters of the Museum, Section V has been designed to house various elements related to the original function of the place.
Thanks to the generosity of the people of Calaceite, farm implements and cavalry harnesses are exhibited in it, illustrating ways of life that, today, have become history and here they try not to die at all.
Some photographs kindly given by the Association of Friends of Calaceite, like others that the museum contains, also complement the ethnographic nature of the Section.
