A little history:
"Calle del Pom d'Or ... It is a street and it is not: just a protrusion of the “plaza de los Arrieros” (pl dels Traginers), which links it to the “Calle del Subteniente Navarro”, behind the Post Office building, at the left of the Via Laietana, a very short street -possibly the shortest in the whole city.Pom is a pom and or is gold: “Pomo de oro”, therefore. Its original name was carrer de n'Arnau de Jonqueres [...]. Centuries ago, a rich man had a house built here. On the railing of the staircase they put a large sphere, or ball, or gilt metal knob, which a servant was in charge of polishing daily. Little by little it gave the street its name, and this is the story, which several 19th-century writers consider to be good."
