Museo del Puerto

Atlantic Coast

Housed in a colorfully painted former customs building dating from 1907, this small but engaging museum is a tribute to the region’s immigrants. The rooms include archives and photographs, and mock-ups of an old peluquería (barber shop) and bar. The historical collection starts in the yard outside, where a wooden fishing boat and other antique artifacts harken back to the port's intriguing past.
