The Military Museum is inside the castle. There are weapons and military artifacs on display from a variety of historical periods and some different countries. There are some interesting sections with soldiers in miniature, scale models and flags. One of them show the different flag proposals presented to the design competition organized to choose a flag of Spain by the King Charles III (1759-1788). Our current flag comes from this contest.
