Cañón de las Bóvedas del Marqués street which crosses under Mirabel palace, and Esparrillas street which follows the wall-walks of the wall for a stretch, lead to the new Jewish quarter, established after the end of segregation in 1419, though rather than the Jewish quarter, more is said about Jewish settlements in sectors where the Jews once again cohabit with the Christians. Arenillas and Zapatería streets, alongside the outskirts of the Main square and Ansano square, formed the nuclei of this new Jewish district.

The narrowness of Esparrillas street, amongst the houses backing onto the Wall and the thick wall of the palace gardens, prolongs as far as the Berrozana gate which provided access to the Jewish quarter via the northwest and which conserves a noble coat-of-arms of the Catholic Monarchs. Arenillas street is one of the most charming in the whole of the Jewish quarter with its arches which support passageways which cross to the other side from the Palacio del Marqués gardens.
