    Calella packs a lot into its petite size, with a delightful town centre and a series of pristine beaches, as well as historic architecture, first-rate cultural institutions, and reams of natural beauty. Located on the northern coast of Catalonia, this resort town sits some 58 km northeast of Barcelona, excellent for a day trip for those staying in the regional capital.

    Perched on the popular Costa del Maresme, Calella has retained much of its authenticity. One of the great joys of visiting Calella is enjoying the local food and culture. Savouring a long Sunday lunch of fideua (a rice dish made with freshly caught seafood) with Spanish wines is truly a quintessential Calella experience.

    Park Dalmau

    Cool down in the leafy surrounds of Calella’s favourite park

    Park Dalmau is a central green space in Calella that's popular for leisurely activities. During summer, you'll see many families enjoying the cool shade of pine and oak trees dotting the park. The park is packed with various plant species, including fragrant honeysuckle and strawberry plants, with the tiny Eurasian blue tit flying overhead. 

    Park Dalmau is something of an oasis to the people of Calella. The place really comes to life in the evenings, when seemingly everyone in town comes to enjoy the coolest part of the day. It's a good idea to visit Park Dalmau on the first Sunday of June, when it hosts the Sardana celebration and Historic Catalan folk dances.

    Calella Beach

    Relax and have fun at the town's largest beach

    Playa de Calella is Calella’s largest beach, stretching from one end of the town to the other. Made up of coarse sand that gently slopes into the Mediterranean, Playa Grande – as the locals know it – is lined by a pleasant promenade and boasts dozens of cafes and restaurants as well as changing facilities and volleyball.

    This beach gets very busy during summer months, so it pays to get there early for a prime spot in the sun. Watersports fans are in luck because Playa de Calella is home to jet skis, banana boats, and even a pair of giant offshore slides.

    St. Mary and St. Nicholas Church

    View the impressive clock tower at this centuries-old church

    The Church of Santa Maria and Sant Nicolau remains as Calella’s finest church, offering a wonderful example of the regional style. The site was originally constructed in the 16th century, and has managed to survive natural disaster and war. 

    A must-see is its bell tower, which spans over 40 metres in height. You can see it from almost anywhere in town. A single, circular stained-glass window provides decoration to what is an otherwise surprisingly austere interior. Locals and tourists alike come to the St. Mary and St. Nicholas church for services, usually on Sundays and official holidays.

    Lokalizacja: Carrer del Raval, 08370 Calella, Barcelona, Spain

    Otwarte: Daily from 8.30am to 1.30pm and from 4.30pm to 8.30pm

    Montnegre and El Corredor Nature Reserve

    Hiking, mountain biking and wildlife galore

    The Montnegre and El Corredor Nature Reserve lies around 22 km east of Calella, providing ample opportunity for mountain biking and trekking amid pine-covered peaks and ancient ruins. The highest point of this protected national park is Turó Gros, which spans over 770 metres. 

    Home to a healthy population of foxes, wild boars and deer, as well as rare birds, the Parc del Montnegre i el Corredor is a slice of wilderness within an hour's drive of Calella's town centre. The park is well equipped official paths and trails for safe exploration, though it surprisingly remains something of a hidden gem in the Catalonian region.
