The origins of the Palau de la Generalitat

The Palau de la Generalitat, the Catalan Government headquarters, was built in 1401 after several Jewish homes and buildings were demolished, among them the synagogue Xica and the house of the poet Moixé Natan.

Sant Honorat, 9

Shop specializing in Jewish liturgy.
The houses that were at the east side of Carrer Sant Honorat were bordered by Carrer del Bisbe where the Christian community houses were; most were the houses of the canons of the Cathedral. Before the palace was built, there used to be three cul-de-sacs here. One of them lead directly to the synagogue Xica, which used to be where today lays the Chapel of Sant Jordi that belongs to the Palau de la Generalitat. With the abolition of the Call, representatives of the Catalan Government (at the time General de Catalunya) began a campaign taking former Jewish properties in order to build a permanent government site: the Palau de la Generalitat. Moixé Nathan lived in one of these houses. He was a Jewish rabbi, a poet and a merchant born in Tàrrega. He wrote poetry in Catalan and a compilation of religious poems and proverbs in Hebrew.
