Summary

In Calahorra the Mikveh or Jewish ritual bath is documented as can be deduced from a note in the minutes of the Cathedral chapterhouse of this city in which the chapterhouse granted a license to the Jew Simuel Matron to sell the guerta del vañadero de las judías. In all likelihood it is a fruit and vegetable garden whose income was used to pay any expenses caused by the maintenance of the Mikveh.
