Pere Turull Sallent (Sabadell, 1796-1869), the true driving force behind the wool industry in Sabadell, participated actively in the construction of a modern city.

The life course of the Turull family is as closely associated with their own family tradition as with the town that witnessed their ascendance, to which they made an active contribution in turning it into a city.

Their active participation in local and state politics, their role in helping to found organisations such as the Caixa d’Estalvis de Sabadell, the Banc de Sabadell, the Banco Hispano Colonial, the Companyia d’Aigües de Sabadell and the Crèdit i Docks de Barcelona, as well as their contribution to local culture, among other feats, made them essential figures in the transition to the contemporary period.
