Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge, Seville

(110+ reviews on the web)
Specialty 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. Put Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seville vacation builder.

  • Small but interesting museum on the remains of an archaeological site.
  • Vale la pena subir!
  • Quick, free and lovely exhibit on the Inquisition with a worthy goal of teaching its audience a little about human rights and the meaning of freedom
  • Uma grande oportunidade de conhecer um pouco mais sobre o maior crime cometido em nome de "DEUS" da história do mundo. A terrível inquisição espanhola.
  • Very cool and interesting! Recommended for all those who want to know more about the Spanish Inquisition. I put only 3 stars because almost all screens and multimedia issues were out of service.
