The Mieres Uprising ((Catalan):Alçament de Mieres) was a peasant revolt which occurred on 22 September of 1484 in the valley of Mieres (Garrotxa). It was led by Pere Joan Sala, and precipitated by the attempted seizure of the property of farmers that were not willing to accede to the Droit de seigneur. It was the beginning of the War of the Remenças (Peasants' War).
