The Castillo de San Jorge - or Inquisition Museum ,is tucked under a bridge going into the Triana area next to the Mercado. It is free and doesn't take much time, so no worry if you aren't impressed. However, it is a lesson children (and probably some adults) need to learn.
You will see the excavated ruins of where the folks who ran the Inquisition lived and worked. But more important, they have a multi media presentation of a woman accused by a rejected suitor, imprisoned, tortured on the wheel and burned. Made up of artistic images, not photos, so it is not offensive or gruesome - unless you think about it!
There is a statement of international human rights to remind us, but unfortunately such mistreatment of innocent people persists. It emphasizes how simple pursuits, like growing medicinal plants can turn a helpful woman into a witch by those wanting to harm her. A good lesson of consequences for children who live with bullying in their lives.
It was closed during the "lunch hour plus" but a trip thru the Mercado and lunch down the street filled the time until it reopened.
There is an info booth at the entrance with brochures of other attractions. Here we learned of the Opera de Sevilla, made a reservation and experienced a memorable, intimate, performance.
