Summary

Through Gato Alley we reach a set of streets which only have three exits to the exterior as usually occurs in the Jewish quarters of Hispano-Moslem cities. This area is undergoing study and recovery owing to its structure as an independent block and segregated from the rest of the urban complex.

This urbanistic configuration was that used by Spanish Jews as a protective measure from any possible attaches from their enemies.
