What to expect

Is one of the most beautiful spots in the city.  Presiding over the square is the baroque church of Sant Felip Neri, and surrounding it are the buildings that formerly belonged to the Guilds of Shoemakers and of Boilermakers.

The street’s name recalls the Jewish Baths present there from the 12th Century until 1834.

It traces the Call’s urban tissue throughout history, starting from its foundation during roman times until the urban interventions in the 19th and 20th Centuries.

The quarter’s Eastern boundary. At the end of the street was one of the entrance gates to the confined quarter.

The quarter’s Northern boundary. Both streets were known as the Volta del Call (the Call’s turn), as they were the limit with the Christian territory.

The Call’s main street, where the Major Synagogue was situated and the most important members in the community used to live.

Follows the inside contour of the roman walls.

The crossing between the Banys Nous, Boqueria, Avinyó and Call. The four streets were developed in mid 13th Century, once the King had authorised the opening of gates and windows of the old roman walls.

The Minor Call was an urban development planned in the 13th Century, with 5 blocks of houses, a synagogue and a central square.

The Synagogue remains to be the cultural and study centre of the Jewish community. It is more than a place to worship, it is also a place to study, discuss sacred texts, a school to learn Hebrew and the norms of Judaism. It already existed a Jewish community at the end of the 2nd Century.
