A PAST WHICH MAKES THE PRESENT POSSIBLE. A HERITAGE TO DISCOVER.

The origin of Torrelavit

 

Torrelavit is the result of joining two villages, Torrelavit. In the year 1920, the two territories were joined and a new name was agreed upon: Torre-Lavit.

 

The territorial boundary of Lavit appeared at the beginning of the 10th century and is a segregation of the Subirats border castle. But it wasn’t documented as a clearly-outlined territory until the latter half of the 10th century, with the presence of vineyards and crops fields, pastures, and windmills.

 

Terrassola existed in the 10th century as territory belonging to the Mediona border castle. The first document discovered that mentioned the place dates from 990 and is for a sale of cultivated land and a plot with a house. But it wasn’t until the 11th century that Terrassola was mentioned more frequently. Various documents show that from the 12th century, Terrassola was fully cultivated and inhabited.
