About Palace Of The Inquisition Cartagena Historical Museum, Cartagena

This Spanish Baroque colonial-style villa is one of the most historically significant buildings in the old town of Cartagena.  Completed in 1770, it is built from white brick, limestone and wood. It was the seat of the Holy Office of the Inquisition. Here the Inquisition put Semites, non-Catholics, and  suspected black magic practitioners to trial. 800 people were publicly executed. Prior to the visit of the Pope, the palace used to exhibit instruments of torture alone. Today the first floor exhibits include pre-columbian pottery, historical art and antiques, and weapons and interrogation equipment. The second floor is used for temporary exhibitions that you can find out about from the attraction website calendar. And the third floor focuses on the history of the city.
