Adjacent to the Isabel II bridge on the west bank of the Guadalquivir, the Castillo de San Jorge Museum is dedicated to the medieval castle’s history and sinister past as a principal site of Spanish inquisition atrocities. The space was built atop the foundations of the 12th century castle and though its history may send a few chills down your spine, the exhibition is put together well and invites reflection. There is free admission every day, except when closed on Mondays. Best to stop by on weekday mornings when visitors can explore the adjoining 190-year old Triana Market, a colorful collection of stalls full of fresh produce, cured meats, fish, bread, and the cheery clamor of locals.
