The Spanish Inquisition

The Spanish Inquisition has a dark international fame. Here in Seville the institution was born and under the fresh market of Triana we find the ruins of the former muslim fortress and Castle of the Inquisition. In this imposing building housed the homes for the Holy Office workers, the secret jails, the rooms for the interrogations and the tortures. Come to the time in which just to be a Jew or suspected to be Jew, or to have different religious ideas was so dangerous as to end confined in those cells and burning alive at the stake. Meet the inquisitors, the tormentors and the victims: their names, lives and offences. What and how was an Auto da Fe, when they were held, who were the participants, the importance of the city during the Auto.

This is a striking experience, that will make us to reflect about the moral, religious and political history and take us beyond the Black Legend.
