Socorro street stretches from the square of the same name to Casa del Sol, the former bulwark of the wall over the Clamores stream.During the time of Enrique IV, as is borne out by a document dated 1452, the houses of the Jewish quarter which had been set up here became an abattoir.

Con dos corrales que son al espolón en los que los carniceros de dicha mi çibdat de los muros adentro encerraren e mataren e desollaren los ganados que menester suelen para las canicerías.</blockquote</p>

<p>This is how it was remembered too by Francisco de Quevedo in El Buscón. The Works carried out between 1986 and 1990 by the architect Manuel Manzano-Monís allowed the transformation of the former abattoir into Segovia Museum after the building was granted to the State by the City Council in 1980.</p> <p>The visit to the museum is organised in six rooms distributed around the central courtyard where archaeological, ethnological and artistic pieces are gathered which reconstruct the historic trajectory of the Segovian province.</p>
