  • The Museum starts well, the entrance hall begins narrating the history of the Inquisition and that part is free, up to there all right. It is when everything is going from bad to worse. They charge you the entry €3 per person and children also pay. Do not say you what is going to be inside despite asking whether exposure was suitable for children, and we were told Yes. Of course it is not suitable for children. Nothing to do with the history of the Inquisition, is a crude catalogue of squalid instruments of torture with a few sketches and drawings about the use of the same. If you want a tip don't waste neither your time nor your money and certainly do not bear children.

  • We enter the Museum by chance but the truth that was worth it. The price per person is €3 and the truth that doesn't disappoint since it has a bit of the history of Spain when it established the Holy Inquisition. The Museum is very didactic since you show machines and tools of the time to confess through torture to those considered heretics, blasphemers, revolutionary, etc. Obviously not focused on methodically explain the Holy Inquisition merely describes the methods of torture used during some of the centuries in which the Inquisition remained in Spain and Europe. For my won the worth a lot and I recommend it to anyone who wants to move to a dark period in the history of Spain and Europe.

  • Strolling in Central Cordoba I came to this small museum. Nothing to brag about because it is equal to dozens of similar museums found in any medieval village with the same instruments of torture and the same descriptions. The only feature that is not a "generic" Museum of torture but dedicated to the Inquisition.

  • So interesting!!! Explanation's, elements, old images and new pictures are great to understand the methods used till 2/centuries ago
  • a modern gallery with old Inquisition tools with their descriptions. Worth a quick visit 😉
  • Deeply disturbing Museum of human inflicted suffering in the name of religion. It is unimaginable that humans could do this to each other. A chilling reminder of the capacity for evil we carry within us, and a good reminder the why the separation of church and state was a good idea. Hint: It was never for the protection of the church, but for the state, who, when fueled by religious fervor will industrialize evil in the name of religion. That said it is still a worthy exhibit to see.
  • Very interesting but it made me really uneasy at some point. I first thought it was like a small museum about Spanish Inauisition but it's really ALL about torture instruments. For each instrument, you see the name, how it was used on people and a picture to show so your imagination will do the rest =/
  • It's a collection of torture tools. Would be better if there was some attempt at putting there use in context explaining more about the Spanish Inquisition, why it was created, it's methods and achievements, what it became.

Where to stay in Cordoba

To experience the heart of Cordoba's old-world charm, the famous Jewish Quarter, or Judería, offers an array of family-owned pensions and boutique hotels with close proximity to the city's main attractions and lively tapas culture. A number of newer hotels surround the local train and bus stations offering more spacious accomodations, although removed from the city's historical district. Above all, be sure to book a hotel equipped with air conditioning as Cordoba is famous for its scorching tempuratures during the late spring and summer.
