The Lavapiés neighbourhood has more than 500 years of history and was originally the heart of the city’s Jewish residents. Some historians attribute the unique name of the area to the Jewish ritual washing of the feet before prayer. In the Plaza de Lavapiés there was once a public fountain for the express purpose of performing this ritual before attending synagogue. However, after the expulsion of the Jews, the synagogue was razed and the San Lorenzo church was constructed in its place.
