The promenade along the banks of the Ambroz, following a line of homes which overlooks a stream, again allows a careful analysis of the construction qualities of the houses of the Jewish quarter. The integration of this small urban nucleus into the natural environment of the river is total. Accompanying the sweet scent of the fig trees in summer, the presence of wood in different elements of the houses reminds us how close Hervás is to Monte Castañar Gallego, one of the most important chestnut forests in Europe. At the end of the promenade an impeccable row of wooden balconies allows us to see how the succession of generations who have settled these houses has enabled a large part of their charm to be kept intact.
