I decided to pop in here on a recent visit to Santillana del Mar. Probably would have been better to view it after lunch. A wee bit disturbing.

Not your usual happy vacation adventure but you will see what people have been capable of in the name of their beliefs. Not to over sell the visit but it has impacted our lives.

This is a small museum which focuses entirely on instruments of torture used throughout Europe from medieval times onward.

Came here while visiting this lovely old town, and it was a real eye opener. It is a very interesting and educational place, would recommend visiting, but may need a drink after to take your mind off some of the horrors.

Interesting, but shocking how humans can treat each other. If you're in town, worth an hour of your time.

If your into horror and gory movies like me. You'll love this tiny museum. It doesn't have a lot of stuff. But still very interesting. Definitely recommend going.

This museum was horrific. It would have been much more interesting to learn history rather than to just see how people are so in humane to one another. Had to leave before visiting the entire display. Would not take children there.
