The Aljube was an infamous prison for women and political prisoners. Many people have been tortured here. Many have died here. Closed only in 1965, and later used for a little while as a prison for common criminals, it has now been converted into a historical museum on Resistance and Freedom. Its aim is lofty – to commemorate the memory of the fight against dictatorship. It tells the story of the rise of fascism, the birth of the anti-fascist movement, and the use of torture rooms. The museum frequently makes use of two of its levels for special exhibitions. Check out the attraction website prior to your visit.
