First of all, we are going to explain a little bit of Santpedor’s history. Originally, Santpedor was called Santeperador because of a river that passes through Santpedor. It is a historic village that was created thousands of years ago. The most ancient document we preserve refers to the year 937.
Santpedor is located in the Bages region, near Manresa which is the capital. Santpedor is a village with a population of 7.554 inhabitants.
The main square in Santpedor is called “La Plaça Gran” . It is very big if we consider that Santpedor is a small village. It was built in the 12th century to give importance to the village because in the past Santpedor was a market town and it was very famous.
Nowadays there are restaurants and a lot of houses surrounding the square. The square is rectangular and it has relevant characteristics of typical Catalan architecture.
Cal Xacó is an ancient house in the center of Santpedor. The house was built between XVII-XVIII century. It belonged to the Dantí family, but it was known for being next to the tobacco shop. The house was refurbished recently.
