GUIMARÃES:

City of Portugal. In the fourteenth century it had a wealthy Jewish community, whose quarter was located on the site of the present fish-market, "praça do peixe," and extended to the Holy Ghost street. A few years previous to the expulsion of the Jews from Portugal this community paid a yearly tax of 25,000 reis. For centuries Maranos were living in the city, and it was the native place of the poet Manuel Thomàs and of Manasseh ben Israel's wife.
