The Wine Museum of Peralada Castle is housed in the basement of the convent of El Carme, a 14th century building restored at the end of the 20th centurY. The present-day cava cellars were originally located here before being moved to the exterior in the 1960s. The museum displays all kinds of objects related to the culture of wine, spanning a period from the 4th century B.C. to the turn of the 20th century. The most noteworthy exhibits include the glass collection, with items dating all the way back to the 16th century, and the huge barrels with large wooden hoops that held thousands of litres and had to be built inside the cellars since they were too big to get through the doors. The visit forms part of the general visit of the Castle museum.
