During the excavations done on the ground floor of the Jewish History Museum, a door and the inside of a Medieval house were located. This house belonged to the Jewish physician Astruc Abraham des Portal, son of a well-known dynasty of Jewish physicians from the city. Adjoining this house there was the synagogue´s courtyard, a public street from the call (Jewish quarter) and the Jewish butchery.

The archaeological intervention undertook on the ground floor´s back space of the Jewish History Museum highlighted the existence of an internal room, delimited by a Medieval wall on the east, according to archaeological reports, and by a lintelled door opened to the Hernández street, on the south.
