“La Maqbara de Mayrit”

Location: Archaeological Museum of Madrid


 A unique piece dating from the early 10th century is on display at the Archaeological Museum of Madrid since December 17: an Arab funerary epigraph. This exhibition "The Maqbara of Mayrit, the death of Islamic Madrid" helps us to understand the past of our region. 

But, in addition to discovering the Arabic funerary piece, you can learn much more about the research that has been carried out in Madrid on the funeral rituals of the Andalusian populations that resided in our community. 

So that visitors of all ages can contextualize the professional exhibition in the field of history and archeology, they have written a didactic publication called the same as the exhibition: "The Maqbara of Mayrit, the death of Islamic Madrid".
