Solivella is a municipality in the comarca of the Conca de Barberà[1] in Catalonia, Spain.

Mentioned for the first time in a document from 1058, it rose around a castle, of which today only ruins remain. It was for some time a possession of the Monastery of Santes Creus, and in 1393 it went to the Catalan crown.

The medieval Sanctuary of Tallat is located nearby, between Solivella and Belltall.
