Singular Barcelona

EL “CALL”, THE OLD JEWISH BARCELONAbook-this-tour

El Call

A guided visit retracing the footsteps of Judaism in Barcelona

Before the Inquisition took hold in Barcelona, Jewish merchants played an important role in city life. Located near the Cathedral, the old Jewish quarter is an atmospheric area which offers a fascinating insight both into Barcelona’s history and the story of Jews in Catalonia.

During the tour, we will wander around the narrow streets of the old Jewish Quarter, explore the ruins of a house owned by a Jewish alchemist, immerse ourselves in the works of Sholomo Ben Adret and learn how the Jewish community lived in relative peace until 1391, when a brutal purge brought a dramatic end to their presence in Barcelona. Finally, we will visit the ruins of the old Major Synagogue, which is considered, wrongly, one of the oldest synagogues in Europe.

  • This tour includes a visit to the “synagogue” museum.
