The widening of Doctor Blanco Nájera square, also known as Huérfanos square, has a surprise in store after passing through the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter. It is a giant menorah serving in homage to the Jews of the Sephardi diaspora and recalling their permanent bond with the city:

Las trasas de ken anduvieron endjuntos nunca podrán ser abaldadas.

In other words:

The footprints of those who walked together never be erased.

Alongside the monument, a further evocation of water at the bridge crossing the fountain and showing the way followed by Jews to enter and leave the city via the Baeza gate whose foundations are still conserved.
