Two entrepreneur brothers
Badal (or Abadal), a surname which derives from the term abbot, was the name of the old family to whom these lands belonged to. In 1864, Josep and Oleguer Badal i Burés founded Badal Hermanos Company and rented out the flour mill known as Lleonard’s to the community of water-right-holders, proprietors and landholders of the Infanta Channel. Later on, in 1894, these lands fell into the hands of Josep Badal i Amigó and Oleguer Badal i Soley.
