Popularly known as 'la Vella' (the Old One), because of his long career with Barça, Ramon Torralba (Ardisa, Zaragoza, 1887 – Barcelona, ?) is a legendary figure in the history of FC Barcelona.[1]

He played as a holding midfield and was known for his strength and sacrifices. He formed partnership with Sancho and Josep Samitier on the midfield.[1] He was a regular in the starting line-ups from the 1914/15 season until the 1925/26 season.[1] He was the first player in the history of Barça to be granted a testimonial match. This took place on 4 February 1917 at the stadium in Industria Street when he was still an active player.[1]
