The Mediterranean world

Sala I
The Mediterranean Sea is a communication route and a contact area between the different people inhabiting its shores. In this room, the Phoenician, Greek, Carthaginian and Roman amphorae suggest the importance of Mediterranean trade relations for societies of the Iberian Mediterranean coast.
On the other hand, objects from the Phoenician-Punic colony of Ibiza and the Greek colony of Ampurias (Girona), evidence the colonial and commercial expansion in the western Mediterranean from the seventh and sixth centuries B.C. onwards.
