Granollers is the capital of the Vallés Oriental region and also its most populated city. The city owes its origin to its strategic position, located at a commercial crossroads, where since Roman times it was an important meeting point and stopover for vendors, farmers and dealers.

Granollers offers both village life and the dynamism of a big city. It is a friendly, calm and ideal city for family tourism.

From the city of Granollers, La Porxada stands out, a Renaissance building that served as a grain market and which was completed at the end of the 16th century. The building is 24 meters long and more than 15 meters wide, with 15 columns supporting a four-sided roof. This building is a clear example of what the golden age that the city lived through, both with the increase in population and trade through its market, left behind. During the 16th century, the new Casa de la Vila, the chapels on the portals of the walls and the Gothic church of San Esteban (of which the bell tower is preserved) were also built.

In the 19th century, Granollers entered its industrial stage, with the establishment of numerous factories of which elements are still maintained today and of which the Roca Umbert Fàbrica de les Arts stands out, converted into a cultural space. Modernist houses from the same period are also preserved, owned by the industrial bourgeoisie of the time, which are part of the Vallès Oriental Modernism Route.

Its thousand-year- old market (cited for the first time in 1044) is still today one of the liveliest markets in Catalonia. Every Thursday it gathers thousands of visitors attracted by the color and the merriment of its streets, full of stalls with diverse products.

Granollers also offers a rich and varied cultural offer, such as the programming of the Teatro Auditorio, the Edison Cinema, or the exhibitions and activities of the Museum of Granollers and the Museum of Natural Sciences, with a planetarium with capacity for 30 people and a wide range of family workshops.
