The lord of the village gave Calaf’s citiziens the privilege of having a market every Saturday. When the day started, the town’s people went to the market. An icy wind started to blow and the people could not speak. The place was silent. The sun continued to rise and gained strength. At noon it began to shine brightly gradually thawing the ice and the words could be heard. In the market everyone was heard all at once. There were a lot of people shouting in the market. They were confused and they covered their ears to keep from going deaf.
Doing this project we have learnt many things of the county that we didn ’ t know before. The most interesting and surprising was that Igualada is one of the smallest towns in the county but has the highest population. We think that we could use this information in the future to explain them as a curiosity.
