Carrer Marlet, section of the Call where more religious and scholars lived.

This street was one of the three entrances that lead directly to the Synagogue Major. One of the names this road was known by was Women’s school or Synagogue. It is thought that there was an adjacent building, or a separate entrance, for women to enter the Synagogue. (Image: Gravestone commemorating the Jewish Pia Almoina (heqdesh), founded by Rabbi Samuel Ha-Sardi, placed back into the building in 1820).

C/ Marlet nº 5

Historical place- cultural and religious. Historical museum and synagogue.
Genre separation for worshiping was common in medieval Judaism. At the same time, it is an indicator that women actively took part on religious life. They usually were only allowed in special occasions, they normally would worship at home. This building belongs to the “Associació del Call de Barcelona” and it has a synagogue for special celebrations and it is an important information point of Judaism in Barcelona. The interior part of the building it is open to the public to visit the archeological remains unveiled during an excavation in 2002. Carrer Marlet is one of the most popular streets of the Call because of the tombstone on the façade at the front of the house at number 1. The Hebrew inscription is in memory of Samuel ben  Itshaq ha-Sardi, one of the most important rabbis of Barcelona (12th and the 13th century). He is remembered because of his charity work for the Jewish foundation Pia Almoina. The Hebrew text of the tombstone reads as follows: 1. Pia Alms (hqdš) 2. Rabbi Xemuel (r 'l ˀ SMW) 3. Ha-Sardi (hsrdy) 4. "Generous people prosper" (n 'b' t ': NPS brkh tdwšn Pr. 11.25).
