  • Lying on their bunks that were developing in the height of the Inquisition traced with makeshift signs of art objects that are valuable evidence of life. The battle of Lepanto, the history of poor fisherman freed from Tunisian jails to be jailed as infidel, by the English poet that trace his last verses on the walls of his prison, this place has the charm of history and tragedy of injustice. To see and review.

  • This Palace, which today houses the University Rectorate, was the home to several rulers of Palermo. Interesting i recently discovered graffiti covering the walls of the cells used in the times of the Spanish iinquisizione. The story is interesting and well trained guides.

  • A very interesting place to visit. You can see the prison cells which feature amazing drawings and poems done by former inmates during the Spanish Inquisition. You do need to plan your visit though, as it can only be done with a guide so it's worth checking out the website for visiting times. The guide we had spoke both Italian and English. Definitely worth the visit.
  • Another must see place at Palermo. You are going to find there original painted ceilings of XIV century. You have to buy a ticket to get in with guided tour. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • Very interesting. The guided tour was amazing
  • Take the guided tour that leads you to the headquarters of one of the cruelest institutions ever. The Spanish Inquisition .
  • Excellent guide and interesting museum. Totally enjoyed it.
