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

The place seems to be unfocussed; it's not clear what it is trying to be. According to my guidebook, it’s supposed to be a museum to the memory of the Jewish communities in Iberia in centuries past. Memorialising may be what it does to a...More

An OK place to visit if it is raining...... macabre but not in a shocking way...... deals more with general forms of European punishment than the Inquisition....... only costs 5 Euros...... not the London Dungeon so children with a gruesome streak will be disappointed!

Contrary to it's marketing, this little museum is NOT focused on the Spanish Inquisition. The ground and third floors are about Europe's historic instruments of torture and execution, macabre but not addressing the Inquisition per se. The middle level features artifacts of normal Jewish life...More

We wandering the area and came across this small museum. The first floors were dedicated to information on the inquisition while other floors feature Jewish traditions and culture. Very interesting and emotional to see relics from the 700’s.
