Museo del Jamón information
Famous for having appeared in Pedro Almodóvar’s 1997 film Carne Trémula (Live Flesh), and equally beloved by first-time visitors to Spain for the sight of hundreds of hams hanging from the ceiling, Museo del Jamón is definitely a local landmark. Prices for a ración/bocadillo (large tapas serving/filled roll) start at €2.50/1.50 and can go much higher depending on the quality of the jamón (cured ham).
