Expert review of Castillo de San Jorge
A reminder of one of the darker episodes of Spanish history, the Castillo de San Jorge at the western end of Triana Bridge was for three hundred years the headquarters of the Inquisition. The castle was demolished in the early 19th century, and Triana market was built over the ruins. It was only during the course of the renovation of the market in the 1990s that they were uncovered again, and the site has now been made into a museum. As you pass through you will see images and objects associated with the history of the castle, reminding us of the tyranny of value judgements, the abuses of power, and the victims of the inquisition.
