We walked past this building across the Triana Bridge.....it's facade is very eye-catching, but we had no time to visit inside, a shame as it would have been interesting to find out more about the history of Seville.

You're not going to spend more than an hour here. The displays are well done, they tell a good narrative about the inquisition. It's not too intensive, but it's a great stop-in (free as well) that gives you another side of Seville history.

This is a short exhibition showing the history of the inquisition and ruins from the old buildings. It is free entry and worth a look if you are in the area. Probably a 30min to 1 hour tour is all that is needed.
