Several documents dating back to the 15th century testify the existence of a Jewish community in this town. The Jewish quarter, located in the surroundings of D. Pedro V square, is a living proof of this fact. It evolved in the east-turned slope. Despite being located in a rather uneven spot, the Jewish quarter was crossed by a main road connecting the castle to the outside and vice versa. There are many examples of the millennium-old Jewish tradition of showing their faith in the doorjambs that can be contemplated either in Rua da Judiaria, Rua da Fonte or in Ruinha da Judiaria.
