Zugarramurdi Witch Museum, Basque Country

In the 17th century, the Spanish Inquisition visited the small town of Zugarramurdi in Spain’s Basque Country. 7,000 people were put to death after what is considered to be one the largest witch trials throughout history. Innocent people were among those who lost their lives, and the Zugarramurdi Witch Museum was formed in remembrance of the people’s pagan heritage and the myths surrounding it, including female herbalists, who were mostly associated with witchcraft.
