In Museo de Almería’s collections, special attention must be paid to the materials of the important Copper Age bed Los Millares (Santa Fe de Mondújar) due to their relevance in the Metal Age, though there are other beds dating from this period that has been so intensely researched into in the Almería province.

However, in addition to Los Millares bed, what this province really outstands for from the archaeological point of view is the Argaric culture. This started in the south-eastern area of mainland Spain, in the coastal region of Bajo Almanzora between 2000-1800 B.C. and comprises the archaeological areas of Murcia, Granada, Jaén, and Alicante. The museum displays relevant photos of this period.
