The Treasure is exhibited in the Museum of Villena (MUVI), which exhibits pieces of great value from the different periods of history that document the human occupation of this region since prehistory – 50,000 years ago – until today. The remains belonging to the Bronze Age are numerous and come from more than 20 villages, mainly from Cabezo Redondo. Likewise, materials from the Iberian period and Roman and Arab civilizations are also represented at important sites such as the Iberian settlement of Puntal de Salinas, the splendid Arracada de la Condomina, the Dama de Caudete, and by remains of columns, pottery and coins belonging to several Roman villas.
