  • The entrance cost 5 euros per person. The place has three floors. There was an exhibition about the tortures of the Inquisition. Very interesting, but somewhat disgusting! We also saw elements of Jewish culture. At the top, a beautiful gazebo. A hidden gem in Granada.

  • Not sure, chaps. Struggled to rate this one. Contained what I'd expect in a museum relating to torture but was a bit nonplussed by the lighthearted Spanish soundtrack as I was looking at whips, chains...  more »
  • Fantastic with wonderful views over the Alhambra Palace. Interesting exhibitions of the Inquisition and Sephardic.

  • Oh wow! You wonder what tortured minds thought up these devious and evil methods of torture and death. From water boarding (as used by the CIA) through to The Rack, various devices designed to seperate limbs from bodies, spikes and Garots it is horrifying. There is also a small museum for the local Sephardic Jews who were converted during the Inquisition.
  • It was by chance that we discover this place. We allowed the receptionist to convince us to see the flamenco show. We made the good choice. Five artists at their best in singing, dancing, playing guitar and even in serving us some pastries and local liquors. All in a very intimate atmosphere
  • Disappointing that it focuses on torture more than Jewish history
  • When I visited it I see not anything special. Friendly attendants and cared for the Palace
