A Jewish community lived in the El Call quarter between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries. The end of the Jewish community in Barcelona begins with the anti-Jewish movement that spread throughout Europe at the end of the 14th century and that in Spain ended in 1492 when the Catholic Monarchs signed the decree thatmeant, in practice, their expulsion. Today we only have the architecture. The Call is in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona and it is an area of narrow, crowded streets full of history. Recently, an ancient synagogue was discovered, the Greater Synagogue of Barcelona, ​​which was restored and opened to the public.

MUHBA El Call is a section of the History Museum of Barcelona located in the heart of El Call (Placeta de Manuel Ribé, s/n), where was the house of Jucef Bonhiac, weaver. This museum explains how the Jewish community of Barcelona lived and the splendor of its cultural legacy.
