JEWRY IN ASTURIAS

Teatro Campoamor

 

"CAMPOAMOR THEATRE"

 

This plaque marks the site of the former Jewish cemetery in the city. The text includes the sale of the place known as "Orchad of the Jews" or "Field of the good men" in relation to the daughter of a famous Jewish doctor Don Yuca (Yosef or Joseph), probably already dead at the time of sale. Clearly, the cemetery was abandoned as a result of the expulsion decreed by the Catholic Monarchs.

This is the point of reference for all major cultural events and the genuine heart of the city of Oviedo. It is the site of the awards ceremony of the Prince of Asturias prizes. Website
