Masllorenç

Province: Tarragona
Shire: Baix Penedès
Inhabitants: 526
Extension: 6,6 Km2
Altitude: 304 m

The municipality of Masllorenç is located in the western part of the Baix Penedès region , bordering on the east end of the Alt Camp, a region to which it belonged until 1990.

The municipality has an extension of 6.6 km2 and includes, in addition to the town of Masllorenç, the aggregate of Masarbonès, as a historic center, and the Font d'en Talló urbanization as a newly created nucleus.

The territory that occupies this term is slightly rugged by the last southern buttresses of the Montmell mountain range, with an average height of between 270 m and 280 m. The soil is basically karst and clay type. The vegetation we find is the garriga above the forest in the uncultivated land. In the cultivated land, the dominant agriculture is that of dry land, the main crop being that of the vine, the olive tree and the almond tree, in order of importance.

The turns of Cal Baró

In the lower part of the town, the wide and straight streets that predominate in its urban distribution become narrow and tortuous, showing the oldest population center. It is the area where the signs of a fortified nucleus are found that some authors place their origin in the late Middle Ages. From this time two diaphragmatic arches are kept pointed in the cellar of one of the houses and a window with a semicircular arch in one of the facades.

The church of San Raimundo de Peñafort

The origin of the parish church of Masllorenç should be sought in a chapel dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary, which was built around 1582. Possibly in 1602 this invocation was changed to that of San Ramon de Penyafort. In 1,702, the Bishop of Barcelona granted permission to expand this chapel, but construction works are not documented until 1740, and it will not be until 1780, when Mn. Josep Verdaguer blessed the new temple. The building is of masonry, with a Latin cross plan inscribed in a rectangle and covered with a barrel vault and dome on scallops on the cruise. The bell tower was not built in its current form until 1855, highlighting the iron angel that crowns the building and that, since the restoration of the building, in 1977, is named Lorenzo. The ensemble is in the Baroque classicist style and follows the models drawn by Fray José de la Concepción.

The core of Masarbonès

The attraction of Masarbonès resides in the set of streets and houses that preserve the style of the different periods in which it was built, as well as in the farmhouses that stand out: Cal Martí and Cal Curt. You can also see, by all the surroundings of the town also the amount of margins and barracks that were built in the past.
