From the place where the Zapatería gate was located to the neighbouring España square, only there are some passages. The high part of this strange square organised in line with a series of staircases which level the uneven ground was resided in the Middle Ages by Jewish craftsmen such as the family formed by Manuel and his daughter Lidica, the Jews. An expansion and meeting place, particularly in summer, with the street vendors who occupy the different levels of the square, this is also the site of the House of Culture, the Library and the Sargadelos Gallery. Very near the square in Doutor Teijeiro street a very popular character in Monforte lived until quite recently, known as O Xudio (The Jew) who ran his small business through one of these trabuleiros which are distributed throughout different points of the city.
