We had no idea it was a former torture chamber! Our guide spoke slow Spanish for us and we learned so much. Beautiful grounds on the outside and spooky as hell on the inside. Cheap, informative and fun.

The tour was awesome, it was a perfect small sized group. The guide noticed I was a foreigner and first spoke in Spanish and then again, in English. He is very knowledgeable and well spoken. The artifacts were disturbing but the mood was kept light...More

I did not know there was an inquisition in Mexico in the 17th and 18th centuries. Perhaps all the exhibits of instruments of torture are based on fact or perhaps this more resembles a house of horrors.

It is very interesting to hear the story of the Inquisition in Mexico. Something one would not imagine that happened in Mexico and also that some of the torture instruments were still used in the past century!!

The hacienda and grounds are lovely, and the stories of the Spanish inquisition and their instruments of torture have a gruesome fascination. Holographic pictures add to the spookiness. Our guide spoke only Spanish, so it's wise to research or study up beforehand if you don't...More
