Los seguros marítimos de Burgos : observatório del comercio internacional portugués en el siglo XVI
Hilario Casado Alonso
AbstractThe present article looks at 1.610 maritime insurance policies registered in the Burgos Consulate between the years 1565 and 1596 regarding Portuguese trade. A great many economic agents, ships, maritime routes and ports feature in them and, as a result, they undoubtedly become a significant factual basis for the study of the trade relationships, as well as the maritime and financial history of Portugal in the second half of the XVI century. Their perusal shows that the Portuguese international trade, far from being peripheral or dependent, displayed complex and varied patterns. In the same vein, the analysis demonstrates that, besides Lisbon, which grew into Portugal's economic core, other spots to the north of Portugal such as Oporto, Viana do Castelo, Vila do Conde, Aveiro, Trancoso, Celorico da Beira and Guarda, also had some economic relevance.
