El Masnou

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

Located between the Mediterranean Sea and the DO Alella vineyards, twenty minutes from Barcelona, El Masnou will captivate you with its beautiful beaches, its rich modernist architectural heritage and its 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, passing through the glorious past of the merchant marine of the 19th century, up to the most recent awards obtained by the Olympic sailors trained in the Nautical Club.

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

El 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 concentrated mainly in autumn and spring.
