The Matarranya Iber is a teaching activity for schoolchildren, based on the interpretation of the natural and cultural heritage of our territory.
- To get to know the Iberian settlement of Sant Antoni in Calaceite
- To discover the Juan Cabré Museum in Calaceite
- To learn how the Iberians lived
- To appreciate the investigative and excavational work of the archeologists
- To relate to others and work with them
- To value and respect the cultural environment represented
In the Matarranya district and its surrounding territories there is a great number of Iberian settlements, burial tombs, towers, interpretation museums, etc., as well as lots of scientific literature on these subjects, all conveying the significance of our ancestors. We are also fortunate to have one of the most important museums on the key figure of Juan Cabré Aguiló and his work in Calaceite. All these resources put together bring us close to a moment in History that left its mark on our traditions and cultural medium and that school students should know about.
The Matarranya iber teaching activitystarts with a visit to the Iberian settlement of Sant Antonio in Calaceite. We will walk up from the town to the site, barely three kilometres away. Once in the settlement, we will invite students to become part of the settlement and begin the activity. Afterwards we will walk back down to the town and visit the Juan Cabré Museum, where we will see the graphics of how the settlement we just left behind must have looked in its time. We will also discover Juan Cabré and his scientific and archeological legacy.
