The Jewish community of Baza dates back to the 11th century.

The inhabitants of the judería were few in number but prospered thanks to the silk trade. A mikveh has been discovered here, and is an excellent example of 11th-century Arabic architecture. Nothing remains of the old Jewish quarter, which spread out around the mikveh in Place de Santiago.
