This is a honest eye opening museum about the Spanish Inquisition. It's got graphic disgusting elements which will make you cringe and wonder about human nature. I'm glad I went - I would never have been inspired to look up more about the Inquisition otherwise....More

All over the web, the Palacio de los Olividados advertises as having memorabilia from the time of the expulsion of the Jews from Granada in 1492. They have nothing at all! I was disappointed.

We used to have an exhibition about sefardic culture, but we have changed that exhibition, and now we only have two exhibitions; Inquisition and Interactive Flamenco. Normally we give this information at the entrance. Sorry for the inconvenience. Sincerely, Palacio de los Olvidados.

There are excellent Flamenco shows each night at 21.30. Visiting the museum entitles you to a discount at the Flamenco show.
