Around this time in the 14th century a third gateway closing off the Jewish district the Portal Mayor (Main Gate) of the Call. This square forms the southern limit of the call. It owes its name to the fact that it was here were the first Post Office in Girona was located.

In September 1448 the city jurors allowed in order to expand, conserve and improve the Jewish aljama of said city- in view of the evident narrowness of the Jewish quarter which they had seen first-hand - an extension to the call, incorporating this area and Ruca street into the northern part. Between the new and the old closure, they proclaimed that all the Jewish families whose domicile was outside the call would have to settle at the new ensuing site.
