A guided tour takes you all through the "sinagoga de agua" discovered only a few years ago when they started to build apartments there. Our guid was excellent, and she explained everything well. Definitely worth visiting

While working on renovations of some homes, the synagogue was unearthed. It contains Jewish artifacts from hundreds of years ago and at the bottom there is a ritual bath. Don't miss that.
