  • There is not a lot of parts, the tour of the Museum can be done very quickly but it's worth to take his time and read the information provided. Leads us to reflect on the atrocities experienced through time because of religion.

  • I learned a lot about the politics of the Inquisition, the Christianisation of Spain in the 16th century, and the expulsion of the Jews and Moors. It was the best documented museum, in terms of notes ...  more »
  • I never saw a similar museum in Granada so it was a positive and interesting surprise. A collection of torture devices, with description and explanation in both English and Spanish, that take you back...  more »

  • Well, it was a very informative visit to a very Dark chapter and horror in the history of Spain and humanity. It costs 5 euros(4 euros if you are a student). I would not let kids under 14/16 enter though.
  • In the Jewish section a bunch of stuff on display, but little is explained about it or it's value. Some educational narrative exists, but not worth the money imo. There was also an inquisition section where most of the items were reproductions, but one can only read that many detailed torture descriptions before feeling nauseated, and imo the narrative should be more about the people not the devices.
  • 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
  • It was ok
