Sant Pol de Mar is a town on the Catalan coast, about an hour by train from Barcelona, when heading north. Specifically, it lies in the Costa del Maresme, just before the start of the Costa Brava, a few km from Blanes. The sand is thick though rocky and the water is clean, it is one of the most beautiful places on the coast. Depending on the area you can find large beaches with beach bars and showers, if you stray from the centre of town, you can find more natural coves frequented by fewer visitors.

A great place to go in the spring and sunbathe away from the crowds and enjoy. Highly recommended. The beaches are not always at their best in summer. I'd rather take advantage of the climate that exists in the Maresme, ideal for sunbathing.
When you visit this house-museum, you always discover something special. An artist once lived here and you can see the manner of his work. In this case also, the artist is none other than Lluís Domènech i Montaner, genius of Catalan Modernism. His house is full of models, sketches and photos of his work. His architect workbench is also preserved. The atmosphere is charming ... very inspiring.
Varador Beach(Varadero, in Castilian) is the main beach in the coastal town of Mataró. Facing the city's urban core, it is just under a mile long and 50 meters wide, fairly decent. It is a typical beach of the Barcelona coastline, straight, with Golden sand which is neither too thick nor too thin. It is flanked by two breakwaters (the South is that shelters the marina) and separated from the town by the railroad tracks, another factor common to the beaches on the northern coast in Barcelona. It offers a multitude of services and, being highly accessible for both locals and those traveling within the Renfe network it is widely used. In any case, for a largely industrial population, having a beach is a privilege ...
In summer the time between 7 and 7 and a half in the morning is a time not to be missed ... the light, colours, clouds, sea, seagulls, pigeons ... and in many cases solitude and reflection time. In short, everything you might be looking for in the "urbanites".
Jardiland is a shop specializing in gardening, pets and decoration. We often go to buy the soil for our the small garden and make the most if it to buy some other things for the pets, sand, food and some candy. My son loves looking at the fish tanks, and the assortment of hamsters, rabbits and turtles, among others, that are on display. For those who like plants, here you find everything from seeds and pots to garden tools to spend hours spent on this hobby.
Holidays in 2012 from Lezo, Pais Vasco to Calella, Catalonia. We stayed in Calella and visited this town and its neighboring villages. We talked along the costa brava, on the beach, full of tourists, especially foreigners. A good place to unwind.
If you live close to Barcelona, and want to enjoy uncrowded beaches, fishing traditions, and a pretty Catalan village, Pineda de Mar is your destination. Personally I find it easy to take a stroll on a peaceful promenade and disconnect from the daily routine in this beautiful town.
This shaped Parkway Boulevard was opened in the early twentieth century to join the Sanctuary of Mercy to the historic center of Canet de Mar. Several small notable buildings can be found from the beginning of the walk, which eventually leads to the top of a small hill, the Sanctuary. Some of these buildings are modernists such as Can Carbonell, a typical summer estate from the late nineteenth century, and other eclectic styles common in homes of Indians. It is very pleasant, with a very nineteenth century feel with barely any presence of modern buildings. Right at the beginning of the path is a fountain designed by Joseph Puig.
La Casa Roura, also known as the Bianga Ca, is a modernist building designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, located in the center of Canet de Mar. It is probably the most striking work of this style located in this place. Its construction dates back to 1892 and is characterized by its brick exterior, but wrought iron and pottery are also widely used. The most spectacular part of the property is its tower, with its whimsical designs and a cornice of projecting gargoyles. It currently houses a restaurant of the same name. The restaurant is worth a visit not for the food but the incredible interior, even more stylised than the exterior.
