Overview
More
This museum sits on the site of the excavated 12th-century Castillo de San Jorge which in the 15th-century became the first headquarters of Spain’s notorious Inquisition. The museum places in context the events which followed the Christian Reconquest of Spain, when many of the Jews who remained and converted became suspected of heresy, and subject to torture – from water-boarding to the rack - designed to extract confessions.

This was a bit of an unexpected visit for us. We knew that it was castle ruins but didn't realize it was also a museum. It was a very interesting experience, especially being able to walk through what used to be a prison while learning...More

This is in the Triana district, on the opposite side of the river to the centre of the city, but easily reached across the Puente Isabel II. There’s no admission charge. The exhibits are displayed below street level, down amongst the foundations of the castle...More

we found this museum very interesting and informative. despite the gruesome subject the exhibits don't depict anything too brutal. The museum is housed in what remains of the head quarters of the Spanish inquisition and most of the information that you get is about the...More

Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge is situated next to the Triana market and the bridge. It's on the site of the notorious prison where the Inquisition used to hold people.

The museum really is more about the former building than the inquisition. The audiovisual installation was broken and didn't look like it would be fixed any time soon. Therefore there just wasn't that much information provided.

We skipped the little videos and used the audios to explain the use of the building. There is an excellent explanation of the times of the Inquisition. Opening times can be a little random but as we went to Triana several times we eventually hit...More
