Josep Tarradellas i Joan (Cervelló, Baix Llobregat 1899 - Barcelona 1988), Marquess of Tarradellas in 1985, was a Catalan politician.

In 1931 he became general secretary of Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya. He also was deputy at the Cortes this year, Government and Sanity councillor when Francesc Macià was President of the Generalitat de Catalunya as well as Public Services, Economy and Culture councillor during the Spanish Civil War.

Exiled to France since 1939, he became President of the Generalitat de Catalunya when Josep Irla resigned, in 1954.

Two years after Francisco Franco's death (1975), the President of the Spanish Government Adolfo Suárez met him to negotiate the reestablishment of the Generalitat de Catalunya, an event which occurred on October of 1977. The sentence pronounced at his arrival has become really famous in a symbolic way: "Ciutadans de Catalunya, ja sóc aquí!" (Catalan for "Citizens of Catalonia, I'm already here!").

He was welcomed solemnly in Barcelona and set up a unity government. He finished his work with the elections for the Catalan Parliament (March of 1980), and Jordi Pujol was elected in April.
