Probably not everyone's cup of tea but it is an important part of history and it is a must. Sombre and dark, an experience which provokes thoughts.

This is a comprehensive exhibition of methods of torture. Sombre, thought provoking and incredulously all true. Just made us realise how incredibly horrid humans are to each other.

You want to see and know about the Inquisition, go to this little museum, when you leave the place you will probably have a different opinion. Horrible things to see and discover but so useful not to forget them.

This is an excellent little museum of several floors. A humbling look into the inhumanity of certain parts of our history. Definitely worth a visit. Not recommended for the young.

I found the sight of all these instruments of torture quite awful. How could a people who built such beautiful Cathedrals and Churches be also so barbaric to each other? But I suppose it still goes in parts of the world today. Everything is well...More

The Spanish inquisition was a dark page in history, and should be remembered for its atrocities. I think this museum gives a good image of why the inquisition was performed. The Jews and Muslims that were forcefully converted were not trusted to be proper Christians,...More
