can valles rocafort


The fiercest Almogavar

The street that gives name to this station is dedicated to Bernard of Rocafort, an almogavar (soldier) of the XIII-XIV century who took part in the great military campaigns of Catalonia. He was Roger de Flor’s (Roger Blum’s) lieutenant and along with Blum’s brother-in-law, Berenguer d’Entenςa, took part in the campaign that the Almogavars launched in the service of the Byzantine Emperor, Andronicus the Second, to fight the Turks in Asia Minor.
