At the start of Arc de Sant Ramon del Call Street, connected at that time with the current Bajada de Santa Eulàlia, the district takes on a certain Bohemian air. Despite its irregular layout, the streets follow the interior line of the Roman wall, concealed between the houses of this street and Bany Nous street. At the end of the street there was a cul-de-sac which went as far as Bajada de Santa Eulàlia.

From written sources we know that this street may have been the location of the Franceces synagogues and some cold baths, but it has not been possible to find them. There is speculation that they were situated t number 15 alongside the Call Interpretation Centre.

This street had no direct exit to Call Street, but connected directly to Castell Nou via a raised pass. In photos from the end of the 19th century the arch can also be seen which lent its name to this street.
