About RondCat

RondCat is an online database from the project to catalogue Catalan folktales, financed by the Rovira i Virgili University (URV) and by the Centre de Promoció de la Cultura Popular i Tradicional Catalana (CPCPTC) (Centre for the Promotion of Traditional and Popular Catalan Culture) of the Catalan Government from 2000 to 2002 and 2005-2007.

The project, directed by Carme Oriol and Josep M. Pujol (1947-2012), has benefited from the dedication of the Research Specialists Mònica López (2000-2002) and Emili Samper (2005- ...) and the collaboration of different interns.


Which folktales have been collected in the Catalan-speaking area? Where are they published? Which Catalan folklorists have collected the most stories? How many versions of Patufet (the Catalan Tom Thumb) are known, when and where were they collected and by whom? Which folktales have a wolf as the main character and how many versions are known?

With RondCat you can answer this and many other questions about Catalan folktales. The database provides information on the Catalan folktales collected throughout the entire area where the language is spoken (Catalonia, the Fringe of Aragon, Northern Catalonia, Andorra, Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera, Valencia, el Carxe and Alghero). The period it covers goes from 1853, when the first collection was published, to the present day.
