El Palacio De Los Olvidados - Review
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
Very good museum. Shocking horrible history of Spain. But the horror show is a great eye opener to modern issues. Lest we forget. Could have more history text I the rooms. Also the top floor has a nice view of Alhambra if you ignore the hangman's noose.
We went there for the flamenco show and boy what a treat it was! The dancer was spectacular! It’s a very small venue of about 50 people but it meant that the show was more personable and intimate. The dancer was so into the dance she was performing that she didn’t miss a beat. My jaw dropped in shock as I watched her feet move so fast yet in a controlled manner. The singer was great as was the guitarist. They were all in a rhythmic mood in sync with one another. I would go back there again in a heart beat. Very inexpensive compared to some of the other flamenco shows. I thought to myself that I didn’t pay enough for the tickets as the dancer deserved more than what we paid! She was that good! Mucho mucho bueno. Mesmerizing! One flamenco show in Granada NOT to be missed! (Right behind the Alhambra) 10 stars in my book!
I gave it 5 stars but this is a very disturbing exhibition staged in a beautiful house on 3 floors. It shows man's inhumanity to man in the name of religion and power. It does try to explain the underlying philosophy of the period, to put the torture and death into perspective and almost tries to persuade us that it was understandable in that period. I don't believe that it is suitable to take young children here. We spent a considerable time, about 2 hours reading all of the descriptions which were written extremely well in both Spanish and English. We found it incongruous that 2 flamenco shows are staged in the evenings in the main hall of the house, adjacent to the exhibits. I suppose that the extreme torture inflicted on innocent people at the time of the Inquisition would have been carried out at the same time as others were enjoying themselves. However I'm afraid that the screams of the tortured would resonate louder than the loudest of flamenco singers.
We enjoyed an amazing flamenco show here. The venue is hidden away from most tourist routes and there audience was mostly local. Small space (25 seats) made for a very homie atmosphere and the artists were awesome. I recommend it to any visitor in Granada, just make sure to buy tickets online in advance.
Restaured old palace which hosts temporary exhibitions. It's got good views of Granada at the top. The flamenco show was very good but the chairs really uncomfortable
