Summary

Barcelona – city of Dali, Gaudi and good food. But did you know that Barcelona’s ‘Aljama’, Jewish community, was one of the largest of medieval Spain, comprising 10% of the city’s population? After the 1391 attack on the city and 1492 expulsion, all that’s left of Barcelona’s Call is the layout of its streets. For more information on Barcelona’s hidden Jewish past, visit the Barcelona Call Interpretation Center, or, for some light hearted relief, you could catch either the Barcelona Jewish film festival or European Day of Jewish Culture celebrations in the city, both happening annually




Famous figures

Moses of León: 1240-1305.
