Museos - Museums, Lima: 57 reviews and 125 photos
In this museo you may see the work of inqvisitors, not only here, but all over the catholic world. Inqvisitors were great inventors and appliers of all kind of torture methods, and their systems are still used all over the world. One specially used torturing device is a Garrotte, developed here by conquistadores. For example, Inka Atahualpa was executed by that device.
The ceiling of the inqvisition trial room is special. It has been made from 30000 wooden pieces.
After seeing all these torturing methods it's time to go to the nearby Chinatown restaurant for a lunch. Bon apetit!!!
Address: Crossing of Abancay and Junin streets.
Directions: Neigbour of the Congress Palace. The most pollution place in Lima, because all the horrible busses go through the town this way.
