Berga is the capital of the comarca (county) of Berguedà, in Catalonia, Spain.HistoryBerga derives its name from the Bergistani, an Iberian tribe which lived in the area before the Roman conquest. The Bergistani were first subdued by Hannibal in 218 BC. They rebelled twice against the Romans and were twice defeated; after their second uprising, much of the tribe was sold into slavery. Livy mentions their principal town, Castrum Bergium, which was probably the precursor of the present-day town of Berga.Berga was ruled by viscounts in the Early Middle Ages and had its own counts from 988.Berga was sold to king Peter II of Aragon in 1199.In May 2012, the town council passed a motion declaring King Juan Carlos 'persona non grata' following a series of scandals involving the royal family, most notably the king's recent elephant hunting trip to Africa in the middle of Spain's deepening recession.La PatumBerga is perhaps most famous for its traditional festival of "La Patum", a celebration which occurs every Corpus Christi, lasting for five days.Free Software StreetOn July 3, 2010 the world's first Free Software Street was inaugurated in Berga, during a ceremony attended by Richard Stallman.In the build up to your vacation in Berga, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Spain driving holiday planning website.
