The first fortress in this location, on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, was probably created by the Visigoths. But today the Castle of st. George, which doesn't exist anymore except for the museum in the old basement, is famous as the headquarters and prison of the local Spanish Inquisition. It was only in the 19th century that the castle was torn down and replaced by a food market, the Mercado de Triana. Next to the castle you will also find the Alley of the Inquisition, a small street that now connects Castilla Street with the Nuestra Senora de la O walk. The exhibits of the museum explore entire process of Inquisition from accusation, attention, hearing, torture and after that, death. There are drawings by Francisco de Goya of suspects under investigation. There's a film of what an investigation of a woman falsely accused of Witchcraft may have looked like. And other interactive exhibitions explore the abuse of power inside the Inquisition.

  • A lovely little free museum that gives an overview of the inquisition in Seville. Great place to visit in the middle of the day to escape the heat as it has AC

  • Although small, this taught me a great deal about the Inquisition which I otherwise would have never learnt. The ruins on show are explored via an overhead walkway which allows you to view areas in detail. Free entry also possible.

  • Very interesting. Worth the visit. Nice local museum.

  • Quick, free and lovely exhibit on the Inquisition with a worthy goal of teaching its audience a little about human rights and the meaning of freedom

  • Small but interesting museum on the remains of an archaeological site.
