Nice little visit Nov 13, 2010
Situated just off the Isabel II bridge, this museum provides free entrance and is a fascinating look into a castle and into Sevilla's past.

The museum goes through the history of the conquistadors, and the key figures that were involved in the area of Sevilla. It was interesting to learn about how the Jews, despite converting to Christianity, were persecuted for their beliefs. The site doesn’t just delve into the past though. It features a few videos from modern artists which makes you think about pain and torture. Furthermore, the key articles of the universal declaration of human rights is nicely placed on the wall. It makes you reflect on Sevilla’s past as well as the modern day.

The exhibition is very easy to walk around and the level of information is pitched at the right amount. The staff are very friendly and can speak in Spanish and English, and offer short pamphlets in both languages too.

If you are in the area, this castle is well worth a quick visit.
The castle is very near the rivers…

definitely! everyone is so near it because of the bridge, but few venture in and this is a pity. as it's free, you might as well walk in. if you hate it, there's always the exit which can be reached in 2 mins!
