Museum of Ancient Torture Devices.

Essentially this was a museum about the Spanish Inquisition, during which “heretics” (mostly Jews but also Muslims) were tried, tortured, and killed. All the plaques described how and why this devices were used on various prisoners, in gory details. Ferdinand and Isabel, Spain’s most beloved monarchs, began the Inquisition that ended up killing tens of thousands of people. Considering Toledo was the capital of Spain at the time, I wonder how many people were killed in this city?
