This is an example of a magnificent recovered historic building (used to be a Convent, a Court House, etc....), aimed to offer Culture, Art and Design to the world (Art Forum"museum") and, above all, for free, but with quality and care.

This building used to be the office of the Grand Inquisitor. At the time I was there, there was an installation titled, "The advantages and disadvantages of history for life". Definitely worth the stop!

If you like modern interpretive art, this is for you. If you were looking for a building that showed history of the inquisition, keep looking. We were expecting that, but got the modern art thing. It was the only thing open during the 12-2 time...More

During our visit to this restored inquisition building, turning into a lovely museum, we managed to visit a wonderful temporary exhibition, mainly of video arts, from Karlsruhe. An excellent exhibition!
