The Spanish inquisition was established by the Catholic Monarchs in 1478 in order to purify Spain and enforce Catholicism. Tribunals were held and non-believers and anti-establishment individuals were prosecuted. Those found guilty were tortured or executed and their possessions confiscated. It lasted for 350 years and finally ended in 1834. 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.
