El Call (Arches)

© Manel Antolí (RV Edipress)

This neighbourhood was home to the city's Jewish community, which carried out its daily activities around Plaça dels Àngels. The district was physically separated from the rest of the city and even had its own exit to beyond the city walls (the Gate of the Jews). From surviving documents, it is known that it was once home to a synagogue, school and baths. Unfortunately, old urban planning reforms partially destroyed the urban area and the recent demolition of a mediaeval building marked the near complete disappearance of this Call, which now consists of just a handful of streets and a few isolated Gothic arches.
