Martorell (Catalan pronunciation: [məɾtuˈɾeʎ]) is a municipality that forms part of the Baix Llobregat comarca, in Catalonia, Spain, primarily known for its medieval Devil's bridge.[3] It lies at the confluence of the Llobregat and Anoia rivers.

It has three railway stations - one on the RENFE line from Manresa to Sant Vicenç de Calders (via Barcelona and Vilafranca del Penedès) called "Martorell", and three on the FGC line from Barcelona to Manresa called "Martorell-Vila", "Martorell-Enllaç" and "Martorell-Central".

Martorell is home to the SEAT corporate headquarters[4] and automobile factory,[5] where the Audi Q3 is manufactured.
