El Masnou

Province: Barcelona
Shire: Maresme
Inhabitants: 22536
Extension: 3,4 Km2
Altitude: 27 m

Located between the Mediterranean Sea and the vineyards of the DO Alella, twenty minutes from Barcelona, El Masnou will captivate you with the beautiful beaches, the rich modernist architectural heritage and the wide gastronomic offer.

El Masnou is a town that has grown on the edge of the coast, which has marked its close relationship with the sea, from the primitive settlers of the Roman town of Cal Ros de las Cabras, through the glorious past of the merchant marine of the 19th century, to the most recent awards won by the Olympic sailors trained in the Yacht Club.

Strolling along the sea side, knowing the corners of the old town, where the history of the town still breathes, and you can enjoy a good meal are some of the experiences that you can enjoy if you come to Masnou.

The Masnou is characterized by the Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters, which makes it an attractive destination to be visited throughout the year. The rains, quite irregular, are not very abundant and are mainly concentrated in autumn and spring.
