Summary

Remains of the former Jewish fence are still conserved under the tower of the current Cava Palace, restored in the 19th century, which could correspond, according to various studies, to the wall-walks of Abzaradiel which were said to have stretched from Santo Tomé to the Judíos Gate. At the latter were the gates of the largest suburb of the Jews (a suburb which may have encompassed the entire Jewish quarter with the exception of Alacava and San Román) and also the wall-walks of Assuica. This may have formed the first fence cutting off the Jewish quarter from the rest of the city before its upper extension to Alacava and San Román.
