Summary

In Manuel Ribé square which opens out on the right of Sant Domènec del Call street there is the new Call Interpretation Centre built on a former Jewish mansion and used as an information and welcoming centre, a place for cultural activities and the point of departure for tourist visits to Jewish quarters. The best conserved part of the building - whose last Jewish owner was Jucef Bonjach, a weaver of silk veils, having died in 1393 - pertains to the corner between the square and Arc de Sant Ramon del Call street which starts at this spot. This 16th century house was built by reusing materials from previous ages such as one of its windows, undoubtedly a door originally, where the hole of the mezuzah from the 14th century is still conserved. The remains of a Hebrew inscription inserted on the wall bear testimony to the restoration of the property after the expulsion of the Jews.
