Palacio de los Olvidados

Museum in Granada

The 16th-century 'palace of the forgotten' in the Albayzín is home to a gruesome exhibition of torture instruments used by the Spanish Inquisition. The top floor, however, is given over to the city's Jewish history – Jews played a vital role in the Nasrid Emirate of Granada from the 1200s to 1492 – with display cabinets exhibiting scrolls, costumes and ceremonial artefacts.
