The entrance is called "Memory of Spain", commemorating 120 Jewish communities in Spain, between the 8th century to the 14th century AD. From both sides of the Fountain of Columbus, you will pass between the statues of Maimonides, Judah Halevi, Spinoza and Ibn Gabirol. The great people from the golden age of medieval Spanish Jewry.
