Living in front of the sea is possible

Among the many attractions of the Barcelona area we can highlight two points on the map that mean important tourist and cultural charms of the Barcelona Coast: the Maresme and the Garraf, located on the north and south of the province. On this blog, we have spoken several times about the advantages of living near the sea, however, this time, we will stop, stare and describe in detail these two coasts of Barcelona and its most emblematic cities, as well as its quality of life that these places offer.

Living in front of the sea is possible 1

In the northernmost territory of the Barcelona Coast we can find the Maresme region, a place that offers golden, long, sandy beaches which have lots of streams and rivers formed in the mountains of ‘La Serra de Sant Mateu’, ‘La Serra del Corredor’ and ‘El massís del Montnegre’. The Maresme is in continuous movement. In the last few years the population increase has been considerable, since a big part of the urban population of Barcelona is moving to the residential areas of the north due to the weather, the beauty of its landscapes and the calm of the coast. Thus, the climate of this territory is temperate-Mediterranean type and its temperatures are moderate and very pleasant.

Maresme is sea and mountain, it is the perfect combination of calm, good weather and Mediterranean charm. It is one of the most exclusive areas around Barcelona and it proposes marked advantages on the quality of its properties since they are residential homes and housing developments, many of them overlooking the sea. In addition, the Maresme has some of the most stunning and best-preserved buildings of the Catalan Modernism. Mataró, Canet de Mar, Calella, Tiana, Montgat, El Masnou or Sant Andreu de Llavaneres are some of the most well-known towns of the area and Atipika counts with lots of properties for sale to live and feel life with the five senses.

On the other hand, the Garraf region, on the south of the Barcelona Coast, just a few kilometers from Barcelona, attracts with its unique beaches, its peace and its climate. The south coast of the province begins in Castelldefels, ends in the town of Cunit and has its midpoint in Sitges, one of the cradles of Catalan Modernism. It comprises two large mountainous units: ‘El Massís del Garraf’, one of the most important reserves in Catalonia, and the plain between Sant Pere de Ribes and the Foix river. One of the most outstanding places is the area that borders the sea, the Garraf coasts, which has formed steep cliffs. No doubt that the best option is to follow the route of a road that winds along the surface of the sea and that takes us to a very valuable landscaped horizon.

Despite being so close to Barcelona, the Garraf still retains all its charming rural and marine essence, as this territory perfectly combines sea and mountain, rural and urban world. This fusion of so different elements is what makes Garraf a unique territory; cosmopolitanism finds its complement in tradition and popular festivals. In addition, this area offers multiple options to discover as medieval buildings, modernist palaces, monasteries, towns… We cannot forget its great cultural, gastronomic and touristic offer.

Garraf was throughout the nineteenth century an eminently industrial and commercial district, however, in the last few years, tourism has strengthened, and it deserves a special mention. Many inhabitants of Barcelona chose the Garraf region as a secondary residence place, which has caused a larger urban occupation and a great increase for all sectors, something that brought about a larger urban occupation and an increase in all sectors.

There are many places that make up this region: Canyelles, Cubelles, Olivella, Sant Pere de Ribes … and, although the capital of this territory is Vilanova i la Geltrú, Sitges is the most extensive territory and the true core of Garraf. It is an old fishing village that is now characterized by its bustle and cosmopolitan life. It is a town appreciated especially by artists as it is the origin of Modernism and it counts with almost one hundred buildings classified as modernist as ‘El Palau Maricel’, one of the most emblematic locations of the city, ‘La Vila Remei’, or ‘La Casa Bacardí’, the old market of Sitges.
