Dels Jueus street

13th century.

Architectural features
In ancient times the call (Jewish quarter) had three porches, a synagogue, a cemetery outside the walls and several shops. At present there is only a street with this name where a medieval arch can still be seen.

There were about sixty families living in the Jewish quarter who were self-sufficient. Montblanc Jews were under the ones in Barcelona and had their own clothing. The kings gave them privileges so as to receive contributions in exchange because of their commercial activity. In the three centuries of existence the Jewish quarter suffered several lootings on the part of Montblanc people who, like in the rest in Catalonia, did not accept the Jews, not only for religious reasons but also for material reasons. At the end of the 15th century, due to the Inquisition, they all fled, most of them to the island of Menorca.
