Summary

Escuela de los Franceses street or Banys Freds (Cold Baths) street, the former name of Arc de Sant Ramón street, earned its name from the synagogue for Jews of French origin taking refuge in Barcelona who in 1306 received royal permission to build it. The name Banys Freds - in contrast to Banys Nous built in 1160 which was also located on the street - perhaps refers to the existence of a Mikveh in the area.
