The Museu de la Conca Dellà offers the visitor a fascinating journey through time in a region which in the long ago was settled by the Romans, and, in the even longer ago, was inhabited by dinosaurs.
The museum is laid out in four thematic sections:
Ground floor: Introduction to the Conca Dellà
By means of a relief maquette of the area and information panels which show the local places of interest, organised around the main population centres, this display introduces visitors to the main features of the geographical and geological environment, and to the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Conca Dellà.
First floor: Roman Times
This room, which is dedicated to the legacy left by the Romans, shows us the chronological development of the settlement of Aeso where the town of Isona now stands.
Second floor: The Time of the Dinosaurs
Here we travel back in time for some 70 million years to a period when the Pyrenees were still being formed and the Earth was very different from how it is now.
Cellar: The Wine of La Conca
In the cellar there are a number of panels describing the history of grape-growing in the Conca, where wine-making was an important industry until the vines were wiped out by the phylloxera epidemic of the 1880s and 1890s.
