MUHBA - Museu d'Història de Barcelona - El Call

This interpretation centre is located in a 14th-century building known as the House of the Rabbi or Alchemist, in the heart of Barcelona's old Jewish Quarter. It is one of the few buildings in the area whose original period features survive intact.

The Centre d'Interpretació del Call showcases everyday objects from the 13th and 14th centuries, found during archaeological digs in the area. Noteworthy exhibits include Khanukiyyes, dishes with Hebrew characters, and a facsimile of the illustrated manuscript, the Sarajevo Haggadah, produced in the Catalan region, which depicts 15th-century scenes, and two tombstones with Hebrew inscriptions.

The first floor currently houses the exhibition "Salomó ben Adret of Barcelona (1235-1310). The triumph of an orthodoxy", which shows the international importance of Medieval Judaism in the Jewish Quarter of Barcelona.

The Centre d'Interpretació del Call also runs activities including walking tours of the Jewish Quarter, El Call; Mornings in El Call (walking tours and discussion sessions about medieval Barcelona and the Jewish community), lectures by experts in Hebrew history and culture, tastings of Catalan-Jewish cuisine, Jewish storytelling sessions and summer school activities at the Centre.
