(1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Learn how our predecessors got "confessions" out of religious prisoners at Le Musee de la Torture de Carcassone.

It's a good stop for people interested in religious history, forensics, or the chronology of man's inhumanity to man.

  • Interesting to see all these objects of torture, even if we had heard, here we are faced with the sad reality. A little scary even when one reads the sign at the exit indicating that if these objects exist it more in France, some are still used in some countries. May seem a bit expensive compared to the duration but there is when even a reconstruction of scenes with models work, it's well done. Not recommended for sensitive people and young children.

  • An ideal place for reocorrerlo from end to end... appreciating its structure... inside the Castle econtre places to take souvenirs at good prices... places to eat from the cheapest to the most expensive... ideal to spend a day touring and appreciating its beauty... a perfect view of all the people

  • Very poor, the price (€ 9.50/adult) is abusive. Worth, scam, for a visit lasting about 15 minutes. The path to follow is sloppy, we really expect anything else. Models failed, bad presentation, too light explanations, eras mixed... In short, bad and expensive!
