Summary

Al-Aqaba or Alacava, the district annexed to the main Jewish quarter or largest suburb of the Jews, densely populated and popular. The Alacava district is annexed to the largest suburb of the Jews after which the latter extends to Santo Tomé and is progressively isolated from the Jewish quarter after 1355 when it was sacked by the troops of Enrique of Trastamara .

At San Antonio square, for centuries a market and meeting place between Jews and Christians, Hospedería de San Bernardo street appears in a Northwesterly direction, which was the main thoroughfare of the Alacava district or Al-Aqaba at a time when the Jewish quarter was expanding outside its traditional limits.
