Calle Cabezas

From the Portillo Arch, this narrow street leads past the fortress-tower of the House of the Marquises of El Carpio. The street got its name, according to the tradition, because it was home to Gustios González, father of the seven princes of Lara.

According to this grim legend, it was here where, while he was holding a banquet, the seven heads of his sons were brought before him. Legends apart, the street is in the heart of the Jewish Quarter and its buildings date from the 13th to the 16th centuries.
