Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge, Seville

Specialty Museum Museum
Step into the epicenter of the Spanish Inquisition at Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge. The museum stands on the spot once occupied by the castle that housed the Inquisition headquarters. The majority of the castle was demolished in the 19th century and replaced by a market, but in the remaining section you can see an exhibit that tells the story of the oppression carried out by the Inquisition. Many interactive and multimedia displays help you understand what life in the castle looked like, both for the accusers and the accused. The tour of the museum also allows you to see the cells where prisoners were held and read through several authentic documents from the trials.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
