Catalonia, Valencia, and the Costa Blanca Sights

Jewish ritual baths

Updated 03/12/2014

Fodor's Review

The remains of this 13th-century mikvah, or Jewish ritual bath, were discovered in the 1960s. It's one of the few surviving in Spain. A stone stairway leads down into the chamber where the water was drawn from the river, but little else indicates the role that the baths played in the medieval Jewish community.
