Guided tour "On the Trail of the Inquisition"

Guided tour of spots with significant meaning associated with the Spanish Inquisition.

Inspired by the novel El Secretro de los Nocturnos (Nocturnal Secrets), we will explore the common elements between Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio, Guillem de Castro, the Catalá de Valeriola family and the origins and genesis of the Tribunal of the Inquisition in Valencia.

This tour utilizes literature to delve into the culture and art of València during the Golden Age. This was a period in the history of our city when the Kingdom of València had lost much of the splendour it could boast in the 15th century, when it was the most flourishing city in the Crown of Aragón, but which remained in the literature of the authors mentioned above.

With these characters concealed behind code names (Shadow, Silence and Mystery) and with the end goal of discovering the true spaces occupied by the Inquisition, its origins and València’s involvement in the tribunal, we will unravel hidden mysteries. We will continue up to the story of Cayetano Ripoll, the teacher from Ruzafa who was the last person in the world to be killed by the Inquisition.
