El Talladell

Our watchtower

Less than 4 miles from La Torre del Codina, there is El Talladell, a little village that belongs to the municipality of Tarrega since 1968.

The Codina family –the owners of La Torre del Codina– was from this village and there is still the family home. Precisely from this house was Dolores Codina Arnau, the first woman mayor of Spain, in 1924 under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera.

El Talladell is a steep and attractive town of 220 inhabitants.

Getting lost in the alleys of Talladell is a mid-afternoon walk that is worth tasting.

Highlight the ermita del Pedregal, where the image of the Mare de Déu de la Llet  (Virgen de la Leche), the parish church of Sant Pere, the great pairal house of Cal Gasol and the old Molí building rehabilitated as a civic center are venerated I local social of the town.

At the end of the Talladell and near the Torre del Codina, we find the cantera del Bujeda y la del Fabregas, which were important fossil deposits from the Oligocene era, when the area was on the coast line of a large inland sea that occupied much of the Ebro depression.
