The story starts Abrera seems that in Roman times, when possibly they were, in the same space occupied today, some houses were Roman towns. One was located near where the hermitage of Sant Hilari and who named Vilalba.

In medieval times, a castle was built in the Sierra d'en Ribes, near Vilalba, on a hilltop about 200 feet high would give name to a territory called the c uadra Vilalba, which later became part of the barony Castellvell and parish of Abrera. But not until the year 1110 that is built what is now known as Abrera. A set of houses clustered at the foot of the way to Montserrat and the Romanesque church of Sant Pere. From XV-XVI century the core increases with the buildings and the population, even in times of epidemics, and by the nineteenth century, the population is divided into nine districts: the Font, the Rebato (1830), they Mates, the Suro and Can Torres. It is at this time when phylloxera appears that attacks directly to one of the most important activities of the municipality: the vineyard. During the twentieth century, there are many factors that determine the population of Abrera: industrialization and immigration, new initiatives, new features, services, infrastructure and new neighborhoods popping: Sant Hilari (1958), Florida (1964), the housing estate "Els floors" (1967), the developments will Carpes (1962), Ca n'Amat (1966), Sant Miquel (1967), Can Vilalba (1976).

Today, Abrera has a sufficiently large population. Much of it, is no longer in summer to become a population based in some of the new developments.
