Mataró is a city in Catalonia, Spain.


Get in[edit]

Take a train from Barcelona airport; travelling time is 1 hour. One-way tickets are €2.25, and a T-10 Zone 3 ticket is €17.40 for 10 trips in either direction. All trains leaving the airport pass through Mataró (Note: there are works on the line for the first half of 2006 requiring a change at either Sants or Clot-Arago); they depart half-hourly between 6am and 11pm.

Taxis from the train station to hotels in the center of Mataró are approximately €3.

Get around[edit]

It's small enough to walk just about anywhere in Mataro. If you're feeling particularly lazy though - the Mataro Bus network has 10 different lines and a very clearly layed out map at every bus stop (EUR 2.00 per journey or you can use a T-10 single zone card).

See[edit][add listing]

Some Roman ruins.

Various architectural works by Puig i Cadafalch.

Do[edit][add listing]

  • Hire a boat at the marina.

  • Rock climb on the artificial wall in one of Mataró's parks.

Buy[edit][add listing]

The buzzing market at Placa de Cuba (every Saturday morning) is good to pick up fresh fruit and veg - as well as to soak up the atmosphere.
