Tarrega The origin dates back to the eleventh century when the Count of Barcelona, ??Ramon Berenguer I, conquers the castle. Since then the city becomes a strategic crossroads that will remain until today. Until the sixteenth century the city experienced a period of prosperity thanks to the Jewish community, but this ended with the arrival of pests, feudal violence and banditry that was a major expenditure for the construction of the wall. From the sixteenth to the nineteenth century a series of crises followed enhanced by large families and fear of people and will not be until well into the nineteenth century were initiated to convert various public works in a city Tarrega complete with rail, light, water, telephone and roads.
