Calpe’s history museum is located at Calle Santísimo Cristo nº 7, in the part of the building known as "Casa de la Senyoreta". This residence is named after its owner, "La Senyoreta Amparitos", a popular citizen who is known for her great generosity since she was the benefactor of various civic and religious works.
The oldest artifacts housed in the museum date back to the Bronze Age (bowls, grinders, sickles) from the Cosentari archaeological site; and to the Iberian era (painted plates, loom weights, fish hooks, amphorae) found on the northern slope of the Peñón de Ifach.
Due to their importance and wealth, the Roman site of Baños de la Reina and the Pobla Medieval de Ifach have a special representation within the museum.
