In front of the Jewish Quarter, in the green zone known as the Pinarillo, there are the remains of the Old Jewish Cemetery, which you should also know. Stroll down Calle Real to Plaza Mayor until you reach the Cathedral, a Gothic jewel.
From the Mirador de la Canaleja you will get panoramic views of the city that you will love.
Gastronomy is another of the city’s strengths: suckling pig or lamb roasted in a wood-fired oven, trout, baked beans from the farm, Cantimpalo chorizos are some of the typical dishes you should taste.
