Summary

The Assuica district (diminutive of souk, market, in Arab) was located in the Ángel street area which owes its name to the Gothic angel of the house where the Cuesta de Bisbis comes out and it was the former main street of the Jewish quarter, connecting the Assuica district with those of Alacava and Santo Tomé.

The arch which joins both sides of the street is one of the distinguishing features of this route, teeming with historic content which merges with Reyes Católicos street, forming a district round about, that of Assuica, which brings together some of the major references of the Jewish quarter such as Juderia street, Barrio Nuevo square or the Santa María la Blanca synagogue.
