An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Thematic Centre for Tolerance in the Castle of San Jorge


On the other side of the river, opposite Eduardo Chillida's monument to the Tolerance, the Thematic Centre for Tolerance of the Castle of San Jorge is located in the Triana district. This centre focuses on the religious, social and cultural oppression exercised by the Court of the Inquisition, established in Seville by the Catholic Monarchs. This museum and the Triana Tourist Information Office have been located on the remains of the old Castle, located in the Triana market.

The Thematic Centre for Tolerance of the Castle of San Jorge has a sensory room where, thanks to the installed video device set, the atmosphere of defencelessness of the victims and abuses of power by the inquisitors is recreated. In the lower part, the route goes towards the old barbican through a footbridge from which visitors can see the preserved archaeological remains, such as the pavement of the streets leading to the boat bridge, the notary's house or the hearing room.

The tour ends at the panel of victims, installed on the wall of the former prison, displaying several real cases.
