Riudarenes is a municipality located in the region of the Forest, about 20 miles from the beach. It consists of different aggregates: l'Esparra, Carretera de Santa Coloma, Majorcan them, Raval de l'Esparra, Riera, Serramagra and Riudarenes.

It is located in the northern part of the territory, as the repeated flooding of the estuary of Santa Coloma have made ??the population was shifting his leaving the church in the nearest part of the waters as they defend. The church, the twelfth century, is dedicated to Sant Martí and its construction gives it an air of unfinished. Just ahead find Diumenge Square (Sunday) where we can see a house with a large door with arch known as Ca l'Oller. In the same corner we found the main street with several houses that keep the owner's name as decoration of the facades.

Around the village also find endearing sites like Montcorb hermitage, the Roques de Ca l'Agustí with some curious fancy shapes, the Shrine d'Argimon and Ardina Puig Torres, already Hostalric road.

In historical, Riudarenes, in the Middle Ages was part of the Viscounts of Cabrera. For a long time was a land of bandits, including the most important, was Serralonga that was just for a girl lover Riudarenes. And in the same way that many other towns in the area, was a land victim of successive wars that took place, since the War of the Reapers, the French and even civil war, as it is in a passageway and it became a municipality affected inevitably.

Over time the population has been improving and recent years have seen many changes, both in terms of buildings and social levels.
