Summary

The first document to mention the Olgacena Jewish quarter dated 1135 specially refers to the donation to the barons of Estella by King García Ramírez of a plot located at the place where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is currently located at the end of Curtidores street; this could mean that at that time the Elgacena Jewish quarter had already moved and that the Jewish collective lived in a new Jewish quarter situated further south until 1498. Integrated in the grasslands of the river park which spread alongside the banks of the Ega, the church started to be built in the late 12th century and was not finished until the 14th century, immediately becoming one of the landmarks of St. James' Way which runs right past it.
