This museum dedicated to forgotten ones (Jews driven from Granada as a result of the Inquisition) is small, but powerful. It reviews the sordid history associated with the expulsion of Sephardic Jews from Granada (in particular) and from Spain (in general). When I visited there...More

I have always told people that my award for worst tourist trap ever is the London Dungeon. This place is smaller and less expensive, but I found offense at every turn. First, the instruments of torture and their descriptions seemed focused on prurient interests. The...More

One floor is dedicated to explaining the Inquisition and its evil persecution of Marranos, former Jews who converted to Christianity, after the 1492 expulsion, and remained in Spain.

I'd always been familiar with the inquisition, but to see it up close and learn even more history was amazing. At times it was quite hard to read the descriptions of some of the torture devices. It's amazing that humans are capable of such horrific...More

There are only a very few Jewish families left in Granada and this is a family run museum. I thought they did an excellent job of presenting information on Jewish life in Spain. The family was very friendly and we stayed quite a while. Interesting.

There are excellent Flamenco shows each night at 21.30. Visiting the museum entitles you to a discount at the Flamenco show.
