The Call Major. With this term, Call, was called the medieval Jewish quarter of Palma. It was from 1300 when the Jewish community moved to the Call Major, as they had previously lived in two other neighborhoods: the old Roman city, in the Call de la Almudaina, and in the Callet. The Call Major occupies the northeast quadrant of the medieval city and the Hebrews were obliged to spend the night and live there, but not to work.
Although the Jewish community officially disappeared in 1434, when it was forced to convert to Christianity, Judaism did not disappear from Mallorca, thanks to those who persevered. Their descendants were known as Xuetas, who were persecuted (sometimes sentenced to death) by the Inquisition and suffered social exclusion until well into the 20th century.
From then on, the so-called xuetes, descendants of the converted Jews, arose. During the walk, we will appreciate how the influence of this group is still evident in the culture of Palma de Mallorca. We will finish the route in the vicinity of the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Mallorca.
