The city is a co-capital of the Valles Occidental along with Sabadell. About 30 kilometers from Barcelona, it is the fourth largest city in Catalonia. Officially called "Terrassa," it is notable for its modernist architecture by architects such as Lluis Muncunill. It is also known as one of the largest textile industries of the Industrial revolution and the buildings can still be seen along Carrer de Monsterrat and Sant Gaieta.
For those with a love of nature, the city is located just South of the Natural Park of Sant Llorenc del Munt with the famous restaurant of La Molla which lies at the peak of the mountain and located in an old monastery.
The city has been in existence since Roman occupation of Iberia and was formerly called Egara. Many of the main streets in the center of the city still remain from the Medieval city as well as a tower and the church, however the church has been renovated recently and the front facade completely changed.
Throughout the city tall chimneys can be found that have been preserved from the industrial age, often times at the center of squares or trafic circles these chimneys are a constant reminder of the economical importance of the city both historically and presently.
