In the Middle Ages in Mont-roig there was a Jewish comunity. Although today their quarter does not exist anymore, it was probably situated in the street that is called “el Call” (Jewry) since 1993, in a clear reference to Mont-roig’s Jewish quarter.
In the year 1391 the Jewish comunity was despoiled, that means, that they lost all their properties. The Jewry, as such, was mentioned in a document in 1489, the year in which the Tribunal of the Inquisition judged a Jew from Mont-roig for heretic and condemned him to the worst sentence, the confession of faith. Denying his beliefs and swearing not to reoffend, allowed him to save his life after suffering a range of severe punishments for what was considered heresy.
