Mataró is a Mediterranean city to discover at any time of the year! The capital of the Maresme has more than 126,000 inhabitants and enjoys a privileged location: located between the sea and the Cordillera Litoral, it is only 30 minutes from Barcelona and very close to the most tourist towns of the region.

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

A walk through the center of the city 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 products harvested at home.

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

This first level 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 to the sea, you will find some distinguished beaches with the "Q" certifications of tourist quality and with all the services to spend a good time in the bath.

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

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

If you love the mountains, you can walk and go hiking or cycling in the park Montnegre and Corredor and if you love adventure, enjoy the Vertical Forest in Forest Park.

Mataró is a city to discover all year round, but in summer the activity intensifies: if at the beginning of July the International Organ Festival (Fiorgue) takes place, consolidated as one of the main international events dedicated to this instrument; At the end of July, the city explodes with the Fiesta Mayor de Les Santes, declared a Patrimonial Festival of National Interest. Gigantes, fireworks, concerts, the Night Crazy and the performances of castellers -practice unique in the world-, are some of the main activities that take place.
