The synagogue's small size points to it having possibly been the private synagogue of a wealthy man. Another possibility is that this was the synagogue of a trade guild, which converted a residence or one of the work rooms into the synagogue. The synagogue was decorated according to the best Mudejar tradition. After the expulsion of the Jews in , the synagogue was seized by the authorities and converted into a hospital for people suffering from rabies hydrophobia , the Hospital Santo Quiteria.

The Oath of Maimonides is a traditional oath for pharmacists and physicians attributed to Maimonides. It is not to be confused with the more lengthy Prayer of Maimonides. It is widely used as the traditional oath taken by pharmacists, analogous to the Hippocratic Oath for physicians, for which it is also used as an alternative. The eternal providence has appointed me to watch over the life and health of Thy creatures.
May the love for my art actuate me at all times; may neither avarice nor miserliness , nor thirst for glory or for a great reputation engage my mind; for the enemies of truth and philanthropy could easily deceive me and make me forgetful of my lofty aim of doing good to Thy children. May I never see in the patient anything but a fellow creature in pain. Grant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements.
Today he can discover his errors of yesterday and tomorrow he can obtain a new light on what he thinks himself sure of today. Oh, God, Thou has appointed me to watch over the life and death of Thy creatures; here am I ready for my vocation and now I turn unto my calling. The prayer and oath were first published in  by German-Jewish physician Markus Herz. In , a Hebrew version  by Isaac Euchel appeared in the journal Ha-Me'assef ; this version also attributed the original text to Herz.

Del Juramento de Maimonides a la Declaración de Helsinki
In the 6th century there was a clear process of urban renovation in the area, as a consequence of the establishment of the political and religious power, previously located in the north of the city. The building of a Civil Palace on the site where the Episcopal Palace is today, together with the remains of the Byzantine temple found in the Convent of Santa Clara , or the remains of the Basilica of San Vicente located under the Primitive Mosque or Emir Abd al-Rahman I, speak about the political and religious complex located in the southern part of the city. But the Jews did not start to occupy it at this time, since the Jewish quarter was located back then in the northern part of the Medina, but it happened in Early-Medieval Christian times. The truth is that we should congratulate ourselves on the good conservation state of the Jewish quarter as a whole. However, there are many aspects that deteriorate it, such as the continuous passing of cars, or the souvenir shops, especially on Deanes Street , which distort that residential old character. Nowadays we can find there the Bullfighting Museum of the city, which is currently under works. There are usually local musicians who contribute to the atmosphere with their music, and it has become one of the most attractive and visited places in the city.
