Etymology[edit]

13th century. From Hispanic Medieval Latin baralia (dispute, discussion, quarrel, litigation) and baraliare (to plead, to sue),[1] of unknown origin.[2] Given its presence in local toponimy in composition with the element -bre (from Proto-Celtic *brixs, "fort; hill") it probably proceeds from a pre-Roman substrate of Iberia.
