The building had several rooms; one of them was the Mikveh. It was accessed directly from the street; it is likely it was from Carrer de Sant Ramon or Carrer dels Banys Freds (cold baths). Banys Nous means New Baths, they were probably named like this to distinguish them from the Banys Vells (old baths) that were based in the Ribera area, another area of the city.
The building, where the baths were, was in the western side of this street, outside the limits of the Call. Even though they weren’t being used as public baths after the abolition of the Jewish Quarter, the building was kept until 1835, when it was demolished.
The baths building, which was outside the limits of the Jewish Quarter, was converted into a private house in the second half of the 16th
century where the Fivaller family lived. Today it holds the headquarters of the Institute Agricola Català de Sant Isidre, since 1932.
