The Roman Empire, despite it disappearing centuries ago, left deposits by way of archaeological remains in much of Europe. Oiasso Roman Museum houses the remains found in the Bidasoa area.
Oiasso Museum, inaugurated in Irun in July 2006, shows the mark left by the Roman legacy in Bidasoa and throughout Vizkaya. It is an archaeological centre which brings together the Roman remains found around the primitive city of Oiasso.
The museum has three halls. The first hall analyses the impact of the Roman people on Bidasoa, the second hall shows the activity of Oiasso port, whilst the third hall contains objects which show life in the city of Oiasso. We can see from the soles of shoes through to Roman combs, without forgetting needles, ceramics, etc...
