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. Access is by guided tour only (organized through the tourist office).
