Also Judaism and Jews had been under constant and merciless attack in Burgos long before the wholesale massacres that drowned Spain.

Many Jews of Cordova, Spain, were massacred by the soldiers of Suleiman ibn Al-Hakim, 1013. While
Special privileges and immunities were granted to the Jews of Burgos, Spain, 1295.

The violence and forced conversions that afflicted Jewish communities throughout Spain in 1391 did not occur here. In fact, the Jews of Burgos relocated en masse in Segovia at that time, establishing the city's fifth synagogue.
