Showcasing Sephardic life in Granada and rather gruesome torture practices used in real life incidents, a visit to the Palacio de los Olvidados is hard to digest if you have low tolerance for anything gore.
The metal masks only scratch the surface of the museum and even though historic Jewish artefacts make for a pleasant visit, you are forced to think on law and judgements implemented through out the history of mankind.

El Palacio De Los Olvidados, Granada Reviews - Write a Review
Educational and eerie. It shows you the ugly side of humanity that did (and still does) exist. They are not asking for much to enter, it was only €6 and they're are three floors and some things are outside too. Some really scary things are in there and there is a section dedicated to Jews regarding their hardships in Spain during the Inquisition.
Well, it was a very informative visit to a very Dark chapter and horror in the history of Spain and humanity. It costs 5 euros(4 euros if you are a student). I would not let kids under 14/16 enter though.
In the Jewish section a bunch of stuff on display, but little is explained about it or it's value. Some educational narrative exists, but not worth the money imo. There was also an inquisition section where most of the items were reproductions, but one can only read that many detailed torture descriptions before feeling nauseated, and imo the narrative should be more about the people not the devices.
Oh wow! You wonder what tortured minds thought up these devious and evil methods of torture and death. From water boarding (as used by the CIA) through to The Rack, various devices designed to seperate limbs from bodies, spikes and Garots it is horrifying. There is also a small museum for the local Sephardic Jews who were converted during the Inquisition.
It was by chance that we discover this place. We allowed the receptionist to convince us to see the flamenco show. We made the good choice. Five artists at their best in singing, dancing, playing guitar and even in serving us some pastries and local liquors. All in a very intimate atmosphere
