Our History

The commemoration of our organisation centenary in 1899 gave us the opportunity to reconstruct a broad outline of its history.

Albert Balcells is the author of this publication, El Col·legi fa cent anys, which outlines the evolution of the CDL from its beginning until 1999.

Its pages present a complex and sometimes troubled path in parallel with the turbulent evolution of the twentieth century. But above all they show us that the present CDL is the outcome of the hard work and commitment of many people.

While we all –the Governing Board and all the members in general– can be justly proud of the progress we have made so far, we must be aware of the need to devise a project for the future that can meet the demands posed by our current society.
