Palacio de los Olvidados


The Palace of the Forgotten (Spanish: Palacio de los Olvidados) is a museum in Granada, Spain, dedicated to the Spanish Inquisition, Jewish history, and Granada's and Andalusia's heritage. The building is located in the Albaicín, a neighbourhood declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994 as an extension of the monumental complex of the Alhambra and the Generalife.

The museum occupies the symbolic Casa-Palacio de Santa Inés (Palace-House of St. Agnes), a restored 16th century building declared Bien de Interés Cultural (heritage site of cultural interest). On its façade there is an unidentified coat of arms, with features suggesting it belonged to a converted Jew who intended to show based on heraldry his status of pureza de sangre (blood purity). The museum, opened in 2014, also offers guided tours after previous booking.
