The escape involved one third of the population: 150 to 200 families (at least one thousand people). Among the privileges granted the city council of Martina in 1495, King Frederick of Aragon forbade Jews and Crypto-Jews and Neofiti to press charges against those who robbed them (probably during the riots of 1494–1495 during the French invasion of the Kingdom of Naples) and prohibited their coming to live in that city. Also in 1495, the Jews Martina Franca were massacred.At the 2001 census the comune had a population of 48,756 inhabitants and a land area of 295.49km2. It is one of the larger comunes in the geographical area, ranking 39th out of 8,101.Use our Italy trip itinerary website to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Martina Franca.
