Many of those whose origin is not given should certainly be included here, since it may be assumed that these merchants were heading for the locality or country from which they had come, and here Castile takes first position. Let us remember that the demographic potential of the Castilian aljamas was greater than that of the other kingdoms of the peninsula, and even after 1391 when their number decreased because of the conversions, they still maintained a high population and economic importance. The towns with Jewish quarters which appear in the documentation are located around the most important routes of communication: Toledo, Huete, Ocaña, Uclés, etc.. 36 This Jewish commerce fits into the traditional mercantile relations between Valencia and Castile, the peninsular territory which had the most active contacts with Valencia, particularly in the border zones and the area of la Mancha, in a radius of approximately some three hundred kilometers.
