Museo del Jamón

Museum in Monesterio

Occupying pride of place at the southern end of Monesterio, the excellent Museo del Jamón is arguably the best of its kind in Spain. Displays, interactive exhibits and videos starring local ham producers (all in Spanish) take visitors through the process of jamón production, from types of Iberian pigs and their ideal habitats to the matanza (killing of the pigs) and the curing process. English-language audio guides provided.
