The Catalan earthquake of 2 February 1428, known in Catalan as the terratrèmol de la candelera because it took place during Candlemas, struck the region of Catalonia, particularly Roussillon, with an epicenter near Camprodon. The earthquake was one of a series of associate seismic events that shook Catalonia in a single class. Beginning on 23 February 1427, tremors were felt in March, April, 15 May at Olot, [ 3 ] June, and December. They caused relatively minor visible damage to property, notably to the monastery of Amer ; but they probably caused austere weakening of building infrastructure. This would account for the massive and widespread end that accompanied the subsequent 1428 earthquake.
