Catalan term or phrase: pellería
I'm working on a historical text that refers to a fire during the lower middle ages. It burned down an area in Valencia "desde la esquina de la Puerta Nueva hasta la esquina de la calle que va a la Merced, por casa de en Bayona, y todo el Trench, por la mitad de la Pelleria hasta la Carnicería" (quote is from a contemporary historical chronicle). Pellería and Carnicería refer to the divisions of the city by trade. Is this the furriers' or tanners' area? TIA.

Explanation:
Yes, I'd say it was the area where the tanneries were located. Cf. the definitions given in the DCVB. Definition 2 would fit your context (botiga o lloc on treballen els pellers).

Sorry, in the answer above I should have said 'tannery district' or something similar.
