It must have been via this Socastiello gate, or via the other of Castiello, that the Jews of Oviedo in the Middle Ages came out to bury their dead in the fossar (graveyard) or cemetery which stood in the place currently accommodating the Campoamor theatre. On one of the theatre walls which give out onto 19 de julio street, the following part of the document recalling the purchase and sale is reproduced on a plaque:

Vendemos [...] por nonbre et herencia de don Yuça, físico, mi padre [...] una losa de tierra cierrada de murio [...] en esta dicha cibdat de Ouiedo cerca del campo de los omes bonos, que disen la huerta de los judíos que yas en tales términos dela parte de la cima et de anbas las frentes caminos públicos del rey et de la otra parte, huertas de contra el monasterio de Santa Clara.
