Summary

Very near the synagogue on call nou was the Vimpeçol gate which marked out the road to Saragossa starting on the other side of the wall built by Pedro IV in the 14th century to protect the city and the Jews by dint of the war with Castile. The route of the new walled space, coexisting with the walls of the previous site, is easy to follow via the wall-walk formed by the Travesia del Mur, recalling these fortifications which largely disappeared with the urbanistic expansion of the 19th century. In the opposite direction, to the west, the walls continued as far as the Rodona tower on the banks of the Ebro.
