    Is the sign that now exposes the Museum. Really very interesting as for exhibits and explanations. Five stars is for the Museum for the spectacular views from the third-floor room. The cost is not excessive. Approximately 10 euros per person.

    The "Palace of the forgotten" is a museum that brings to light the Sephardic Jewish contribution to the history of Granada. Exposes various objects connected with the cult but also to the history of the Inquisition and its methods against Jews and Muslims.

    Very interesting couple of hours spent here. It is mostly a museum with torture instruments but there is also a section on Jewish history (the items need more detail though) and a general overview of ...  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

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
