Mataró is a Mediterranean city to discover at any time of the year! The capital of Maresme has more than 128,000 inhabitants and enjoys a privileged location: located between the sea and the Coastal Mountains, it is just 30 minutes from Barcelona and very close to the most tourist towns in the region.

The city has been able to collect and preserve traditions, history, heritage, culture and natural environment to offer it to its visitors today.

A walk through the city center allows you to discover a quality and diverse commercial and gastronomic offer, which also includes the traditional markets of El Rengle and Plaza de Cuba, with the best Homegrown products.

This offer combines with an attractive and pleasant environment where you can be surprised by samples of the rich heritage: the Roman legacy of the ancient city of Iluro, the beauty of the baroque complex of the Chapel of Sorrows in the Basilica of Santa María or the Gaudí nave, the first work of the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí and currently home to the Museum of Contemporary Art where the Bassat Collection is exhibited, are just a few examples.

This first-class heritage can be discovered with guided tours or with the free audio guide service, available in five languages (Catalan, Spanish, English, French and Russian).

If you go closer to the sea, you will find distinguished beaches with "Q" certifications for tourist quality and with all the services to have a good time swimming.

The gastronomic and leisure offer of the maritime façade is complemented by that of the Port of Mataró , a marina with more than a thousand berths that offers nautical and underwater activities throughout the year.

In June, Mataró welcomes summer with the Port Festival, during which a large number of activities are organized to enjoy the sea.

If you are passionate about the mountains, you can walk and take excursions on foot or by bike through the Montnegre i Corredor Park and, if you are an adventure lover, enjoy the Vertical Forest in the Forest Park.

Mataró is a city to discover all year round, but in summer the activity intensifies with the Festa al Port and at the end of July the city explodes with the Les Santes Festival, declared a Heritage Festival of National Interest. Giants, fireworks, concerts, the " Nit Boja" and human tower performances are some of the main activities that take place.
