Ok, donuts not a big place. But, it does have the collection of torture instruments you would expect to see. However, what's more striking is the description of what human beings did to each other.... and what the church in the name of the almighty...More

Certainly has the shock factor and assuming the exhibits were true to history it shows the brutality of the church and times. I was a bit disturbed by some of the images that looked contrived and over representation of naked women. Mixed views on this...More

We stumbled upon this quirky museum by wandering the lanes of Córdoba. It is difficult to see, as it is only a single doorway with a long hall. The number of suits of armour grabbed our attention firstly. As we explored the suits of armour...More

Down a small ally in city centre, this smal Galery or Museum contains a huge selection with historical commentary in several languages about the Inquisition. I was shocked by the evilness of the torture equipment and amazed as to how long the period continued. For...More

Kinda sad and depressing. Has actual tools used in the inquisition to torture Muslims and Jews. Wearing clean clothes on Saturdays or refusing pork was a sure way to lose your life.
