Hotel mogul Jordi Clos has devoted a considerable part of his life to gathering ancient Egyptian artifacts, which are showcased in his private museum categorised according to themes (e.g. pharaohs, religion, funerary practices, mummification, craftsmanship, and eroticism). Visitors can expect to find funerary items, statues (including a bronze rendition of Bastet from 300 BCE), jewellery (like a beautiful gold ring from the 6th or 7th century BCE), stonework, earthenware, and even a wooden and leather bed estimated to have been created around 2800 BCE.
