This museum sits on the site of the excavated 12th-century Castillo de San Jorge which in the 15th-century became the first headquarters of Spain’s notorious Inquisition. The museum places in context the events which followed the Christian Reconquest of Spain, when many of the Jews who remained and converted became suspected of heresy, and subject to torture – from water-boarding to the rack - designed to extract confessions.

This museum provides a sober look at the fate of many who suffered or who were killed for their faith. The Castle was the headquarters for the Inquisition for 300 years and many of those who suffered were condemned in this building. As a Protestant,...More

This little gem is not easy to find the entrance. Go across the Triana bridge and you will see the market on the right. Go down the market steps and turn immediate right. This is the entrance. The first sensory rooms are a little confusing...More

I was not really knowing what to expect from this exhibition, but it was brilliantly put together, not at all sensational, but making you think and, as intended, reflect on the past. You are taken on a journey through the ruins of the castle, eerily...More
