Time Out says

This was the most important synagogue in the Call (Barcelona's Jewish quarter) until the Inquisition began in 1391. It is active today and is the home of the Associació Call de Barcelona. One of the rooms, which is reserved for prayer only, houses some objects of historical interest such as an ancient menorah and centuries-old Torahs, and in another room are wooden receptacles that were used for washing clothes – remnants from a family who lived in the building until they were discovered as Jews. The façade complies with all the religious requirements, and the synagogue faces Jerusalem with the two windows at knee height so that light can enter from that direction.
