King James I granted Ramón de Bocona and 40 settlers a Municipal Charter to establish Catí in 1239. It quickly grew to become a small village in the Morella region, and became independent in 1691. Since medieval times, Catí has been known for its livestock and wool trade, which made the town one of the richest in the region.

For the surnames of those neighbors are supposed to come from the land of Lleida.

Nowadays, Catí’s primary economic activity is based around livestock, and the town contains a feed factory and a cheese factory, as well as bottling and furniture production facilities.
