A legend, men, a terroir ...
To the Terrassaous vineyards, a legend wants it to be in very old times,
while Barcelona was one, near the torrent of the "Canterrane", a city named Mirmanda.
Mirmanda would have been the domain of fairies before being destroyed by a sudden rise in the waters of the Mediterranean.
Invisible to the common people, this quoted has been shepherds,
some of which have been appreciated and have become very rich.
Nobody knows the origin of this legend that shows the richness of the Catalan imagination.
The oldest mention of the village of Terrats, in the form "Terrenum", dates from July of the year 844.
That day Argila, son of the count of Barcelona, sold to his own son, Bérà, two properties with their dependencies.
One was named Furchas (now Fourques village) and the other Terrenum.
A century later, in the year 960, was transformed into Terradas becoming shortly after Terrats.
