Jewish Quarter

The Jewish quarter of Barcelona is located beside Plaça Sant Jaume. In existance since the 11th century until the August of 1391 - when the neighbourhood was raided and destroyed - a little investigation unveils a numer of commemorative plaques and stones. These are found at the old Jewish baths, in shop and street names such as Banys Nous. This quarter was built in the typical medieval Barcelona style but prominent vestiges worth visiting are the Ancient Synagogue (c. Marlet 5), MUHBA El Call (Jewish museum) and the Jewish Bath (Banys Nous 10). The baths are located inside a shop, discovered during renovation. Its central courtyard, six arches and pool were built on stone probably during the 12th century, and they remain in perfect condition.

Near to the Jewish Quarter is another important stop: Plaça de Sant Felip Neri. Bullet marks still remain on the façade of the church, resulting from a bomb dropped there during the Spanish Civil War.
