The New Jewish quarter in Tarazona
Marrodán street
Tarazona

Spain

The steps of cuesta de los Arcedianos connect the Old Jewish quarter to the New Jewish quarter, created in the early decades of the 15th century. It is a narrow, steep alley which crosses a considerable height to go down to river level and its route continues to hold a certain air of mystery. Once you have descended, on the left there is the passageway connecting with Marrodán street and on the right the Nuestra Señora or Nueva Juderia square around which a new Jewish district was developed.

At the same square a narrow passageway has the rights of way of an old street in the district, passing underneath a contemporary building and slightly further on, between numbers 20 and 22 of Paseo de los Fueros de Aragón, an iron gate cuts off passage to an old medieval alley, now out of use; the remains of what was the last residence of a collective based in Tarazona for centuries.
