Palace of the Inquisition and Historical Museum
Located on Plaza de Bolivar, this is a fascinating place. Over the course of 200 years, the inquisition burned five or six accused heretics and witches. The fiendish instruments that persuaded them to confess are displayed in a small museum. Built towards 1770 for the inquisition tribunal see, this house is one of most significant constructions of civil architecture in Cartagena. It was second see for the tribunal that from its beginning in 1610 operated in another house in front of the existent Bolivar Square, at the Actuary?s Portico.
