Summary

Marlet Street starts at number 1 with a headstone recalling on its façade the figure of Rabbi Samuel Ha-Sardi and which was found in 1820 during the construction works on the current buildings. On the transcription which appears on the headstone from 1826, a modern reinterpretation would probably run something like:

Pious Foundation of Rabbi Samuel Ha-Sardi: its light burns evermore.

It is a replica in any case as the original is on show at the City History Museum of Barcelona.
