Holidays to Mataro
A compact city fronted by the endless blue Mediterranean, Mataro is a sophisticated seaside town. It boasts real historical significance: evidence of Roman settlements can still be seen in the ruined villa Torre Lauder's mosaic floor. The sprawling beaches and rugged Iberian landscape provide the ideal backdrop for swimming, hiking and sampling the salty pork and rich seafood typical of Catalan cuisine. Only 35km from Barcelona, Mataro is a convenient base for exploring Spain's second city.
