Le Musee de la Torture de Carcassone, Carcassonne

1.0
#3 of 8 in Museums in Carcassonne
Learn how our predecessors got "confessions" out of religious prisoners at Le Musee de la Torture de Carcassone. This small museum is dedicated to the inhumane torture devices and methods used during the Holy Inquisition. The instruments on display forced unfortunate captives to convert or die. It's a good stop for people interested in religious history, forensics, or the chronology of man's inhumanity to man.

    It is sure that we perceive better the barbarity of this time but the "scenarios" with poor quality models do not lead to much and we would have preferred more explanation on the notions of "repented", "heretic" and on the course of events between the arrest and the judgment. This is only an opinion.

    The human being has no limit regarding torture... That's the lesson learned by visiting this museum.

    Note that costs nothing short of hexose. Over nine euros to visit a Museum "diffuso" consists of two separate structures where you can watch improvvistate installations in which rely on standard mannequins from the Mall, the arduous task of suffering, pain and inpersomificare sadism of victims and victimizers. Or, see homemade reproductions of instruments of torture, whose descriptive captions seem thrown there by accident, as well as some rock or plastic medieval castles. The boards are nothing but frames which display poor translations from French in four languages (English, Spanish, German and Italian), pity that the author of translations is the mythical google translate. To witness the refinement of materials exposed: an image of gallows stated Conversely, the poor were hanged that defy laws of physics, and in spite of the gravity turn your feet into heaven. The witches House atmosphere of Carnival is the icing on the cake. Disorganized, sloppy and unkept. More than money poorly spent.

Where to stay in Carcassonne

Although the picturesque La Cite is a tempting place to stay, consider the quieter and more affordable La Bastide Saint Louis down the hill. La Bastide provides easy access by foot to the walled La Cite for daily tours and peace and quiet after dark.
