Barrio Judio

General Information

The Barrio Judio (Jewish Quarter) is situated in the city centre, in the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic). Before the 15th century, when the Jews were driven away from Catalonia, this quarter was the centre of Barcelona’s Jewish community. Although the majority of the Jewish community of Catalonia lived in Girona, the Jewish community of Barcelona was also very strong and wealthy.

Tips and Recommendations for Visiting Barrio Judio


  • It is important to know that the Sinagoga Major de Barcelona is closed for visitors on Saturdays.
  • All streets of the Barrio Judio, and the Sinagoga Major de Barcelona as well, are accessible by wheelchair. However, during the summer the area is usually overcrowded, so it is recommended for people with disabilities to visit the quarter either in the mornings or in the afternoon (for additional information – Accessibility in Barrio Judio and Accessibility in Gothic Quarter).
