Come Expecting The Spanish Inquisition

The Museo de Castillo de San Jorge is notorious as the former headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition. These days, it's the site of a small museum that preserves the terrible but important history of this bloody period of religious persecution.

While it's definitely more of an "educational" than "fun" destination, at the very least visitors can enjoy the classic architecture that has been preserved. There's also an excavation on site that has uncovered the ruins of a castle where the Inquisition was thought to have begun. Admission is free and there is also a free audio walking tour available.
