Rocafort de Queralt

Province: Tarragona | Shire: Conca de Barberà | Inhabitants: 258 | Extension: 8,5 Km2 | Altitude: 566 m

In the province of Tarragona find Rocafort de Queralt, a town in the comarca of Conca de Barbera. His term is crossed by the river Vallverd, finally incorporated right into the creek and river Rocafort Conesa.

There are reports of this population of 1076, when this territory was Guitard Guerau possession of Santa Perpetua. As for the castle begins to hear in the year 1178. Today, it is in the highest part of the town and is privately owned. It retains its rise since remodeled in the sixties.

In this town we found a heritage building that shines by itself, the Agricultural Cooperative. Cathedral is a modernist wine, which was begun in 1918, designed by architect César Martinell. The three ships were made in different years: in 1918, in 1931 and in 1947. The material used for construction was the mason and brick and at that time the wood was scarce.

The current baroque church is dedicated to Sant Salvador and projected over the remains of the ancient and early church.

In this nucleus also had a strong influence human movement known as "Indians", those who went to America to make his fortune. Here, were largely due to the phylloxera that malmetió much agricultural land. Many of them went to Cuba and of these, those returning enriched new residences were built where they put forth a completely different air to be had here. We only have to look at Cal's house Claret fully colonial style.

Finally, we should emphasize the Bonet portal reminiscent of the medieval style.
