In the basement, in the Esterante Restaurant, you can admire perfectly preserved fragments of the defensive wall from the 14th century. The district of Kazimierz was then not only a separate city, but also the first line of defense of Krakow against invaders of hostile countries.
The tenement house was built in 1909, and its designer was the well-known Krakow architect Leopold Tlachna.
In the interwar period, the building was a religious school - Talmund Tora, maintained by the Jewish community. Up to 1,500 students attended it!
The school was managed by the heads of synagogues and Hasidic houses of prayer.
