Between 1890s and 1950, a series of events related with industrial revolution and evolution happened.
In 1890 the colony of Borgonyà was constructed in the basin of Ter. While this colony took shape, in France Charles de Gualle, a French politician and president, was born.
The following year, the Sucre Factory was built in Vic, one of the two in Catalonia.

The purpose of this factory was the production of sugar, but due to the failure of the business, it became a soup tins factory. Between 1891 and 1892 there was an economic crisis in Spain, which caused some manufacturers to take advantage of this crisis to renew machining in the industry and, therefore, many workers were unemployed.
In 1895, the war began in Cuba against Spanish rule. Due to this Carlist war, many people of Gurb had to go to fight the War of Cuba. In that same year, he was born in Murcia, Juan de la Cierva, a man who later invented the craftair and was the announcer of the helicopter.

A year later, la Farinera de Vic was built, which, at that time, was used for the production of sausages. This same year, in 1896, there were the Olympic Games in Athens, and it should be noted that they were the first modern Olympics.

In 1898, Spain declared war in the United States and, because of that, the country lost the colonies of Cuba, the Philippines and Puerto Rico.

In 1910, the new train station was built in Vic, the same year that the Spanish Government authorised women to study at the university, which until then it had not been possible.

In 1912, the year in which the Spanish president José Canalejas was assasinated at the Puerta del Sol, the Sant Bartomeu road began to be built. This road passes through Gurb, and it’s the main one.

A few years later, in 1929, the first midwife for pregnant womens appeared in Gurb.

In 1931, with the Second Republic, Catalonia was able to recover the institutions and, furthermore, Catalan was approved as the official language, a very important fact for the native Catalans. In the same year, apart from the approval of the Catalan language, Spain gave woman the right to vote, one of the other important point for the evolution of the country.

The Spanish Civil War began in 1936 and lasted until 1938. During this time, la Sucrera de Vic was used to manufacture aircraft engines. Besides, with the beginning of this stage, the working classes gain power over the factories.

When the Spanish Civil war ended, the Second World War, which lasted until 1945, began internationally. In the middle of this period of wars, in 1942, the Spanish poet Miguel Hernández died in the infirmary of a prison in Alicante.

Finally, in 1950 and after the end of the Second World War, there were the first migratory movements towards Vic, thanks to its economic activity.
