Summary

After going through, via the streets of San Clemente and San Pedro Mártir, the upper suburb, Gordo alley connects with Valdecaleros square which constitutes a small core around which the Caleros district was organized where one of the ten famous synagogues of the city was situated which are mentioned in a well-known medieval poem. After passing through Aljibillo and Rojas streets, the route stops at Salvador square, the main access to the Jewish quarter via the east. Here the splendid church of El Salvador, built on the site of a former mosque, gives us a short history lesson, conserving built into its tower Roman and Visigoth elements and Moslem horseshoe arches supported on Gothic chapters in the interior.
