I've been there too times! It has all this torture devices with pictures and details of how and why there were used. You can't help to feel disgusted and amazed at the same time.

This gallery is a must see for anyone interested in understanding the Spanish Inquisition. It is very different from its beautiful surrounding in Cordoba but definitely one of the best displays about a dark period in human history when opponents of the church and rulers...More

This is a very impressive exposition of instruments and materials used by the inquisitors to practice torture, especially against Jews. There are many pictures but also the actual instruments of torture. It is not a pleasant visit but it is important to see and to...More

The museum is more about the tools the inquisition used to torture their victims than the institution itself. Some more background info would help! Otherwise the replicas are well crafted.

Entrance fee €3. Historical facts good. The entrance gives most of the actual inquisition history. The torture equipment is pretty grim but the write ups in Spanish, French, Italian, German & English made it compulsive reading. Worth a look once you've seen the city.
