There are two exhibitions at the Palacio de los Olvidados: one has a display of torture instruments that were used in Spain and in Europe during the inquisition, and the other is an interactive flamenco museum.

They were built in the 11th century and are considered to be among the oldest and most complete baths in Spain.

However, these baths escaped destructions probably because they occupy the ground floor of a private house.

Casa de los Tiros
Casa de los Tiros
The Casa de los Tiros is a 16th century building with a museum for local arts and traditions.
Like many of the palatial houses in Granada, the Casa de los Tiros was built in the 16th century between 1530 and 1540 and gets its name from the cannons that were placed between its ramparts ("tiros" means "shots" in Spanish). Its façade originally formed part of the defensive wall surrounding the area where the potters had their workshops and studios. One of the notable features of the building is the "Cuadra Dorada" with its painted wooden-beamed ceiling. The tower is the only original part of the building and the other parts of the house were subsequently built around this. It currently houses a Local Arts and Traditions Museum.
