Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge, Seville

3.8
#13 of 36 in Museums in Seville
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. You can plan Seville trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • A lovely little free museum that gives an overview of the inquisition in Seville. Great place to visit in the middle of the day to escape the heat as it has AC
  • Although small, this taught me a great deal about the Inquisition which I otherwise would have never learnt. The ruins on show are explored via an overhead walkway which allows you to view areas in detail. Free entry also possible.
  • Very interesting. Worth the visit. Nice local museum.
  • Small but interesting museum on the remains of an archaeological site.
  • 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

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.
