Massot Evangenà was a prominent figure during the 14th century, the last period of the Jewish community in Barcelona. The main site was next to the Fountain (at Carrer Sant Honorat) next to the main consulate house. This house was one of the most valued buildings after the abolition of the Jewish community. Massot Evangenà changed his name as a convert taking the name of Llorenç de Santcliment. He was the king’s accountant; he worked for Pere el Cerimoniós (Peter IV of Aragon) and was a member of infant Joan’s house, the future king. He had been the secretary of the community in several occasions (1358, 1363 and 1366-67) and King Joan granted him royal permission to build his private synagogue. This synagogue
