Jewish presence in Barcelona

Bjda. Santa Eulàlia, 4

Jewish life in Barcelona is not clearly documented until the 12th century. The exact date of the first settlement of the Jewish community in Barcelona and its expansion around Catalonia it is not yet known. (Picture: The Barcelona Haggadah).

Anamorfosis

Inventions of the Industrial Revolution from the 19th and the 20th centuries.
In Catalunya the Jewish and the Christian communities coexisted for centuries. However it is known that Barcelona was an important milestone in the ancient Via Augusta. The last documented Jewish owner of this building was Jacob Cofen (or Cohen) in the 14th century. His surname relates him to the priestly family, one of the most prestigious families with a religious background. Kohanim performed the services at the Temple of Jerusalem. His wife also belonged to a well reputed and traditionally well-known family from Barcelona, the Cap. The date written on the plaque by the door, 1852, indicates the year of the modern construction of the current building.  No remains have been kept of the buildings that were in this site before. Those would be where the vault that covered the street rested.  

A journey through time that allows us to see everyday objects that belonged to a now distant past, which are worthy of collection.
