Palacio de los Olvidados Overview

The museum chronicling the Inquisition can be found in the Palacio de Los Olvidados (Palace of the Forgotten). The museum features a collection of torture, public humiliation, and execution implements used by inquisitorial, ecclesiastical, and civil courts across Europe. There is a display of interactive flamenco at this palace as well. In this exhibition, visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the multifaceted sensations that flameco has to offer.

The Palacio de los Olvidados occupies a structure from the sixteenth century that was formerly called Palacio de Santa Inés. As such, it is one of the few aristocratic homes in Albaicin that has been preserved in its original splendour.

Since the shields on the building's facade have been shaved or destroyed, it is assumed that the building once belonged to a "convert" who wished to conceal the "footprints" of his lineage. This 500-year-old structure was recently transformed into a cultural centre where the extraordinary art collection of the Crespo López family is on display.

The goal is to honour the once-prominent Jewish culture of Spain, and of Granada in particular, which has faced all the torture but forgotten. There are a total of six galleries showcasing artefacts from various eras of the Jewish community in Spain.

About 50 people can watch performances, concerts, and other events in the courtyard's open air amphitheatre. There are two rooms, one on each floor of the Palace, set aside for workshops and activities that both kids and adults can participate in for fun.

Inquisition, Instruments of Torture

Flamenco venue Los Olvidados can be found inside Granada's Palace of the Forgotten, a magical and enchanting spot near the Alhambra's foot and the Carrera del Darro. With its 16th-century architecture and recent restoration, this venue is the city's top pick for experiencing authentic flamenco performances. As night falls, the Albayzn's 16th-century Palacio de los Olvidados—which is also, bizarrely, a museum of Spanish Inquisition torture instruments—transforms into an intense flamenco space with quality performers smashing their stuff in the courtyard.
