Today from Hotel Acapulco we want to finish our trip to Barcelona using the Coast Train.
If you remember, the last stop was Sant Andreu de Llaveneres. Well, just as the train starts rolling on again, you will stop at Mataró.
From Mataró we want to highlight its small "rambla" where you can walk, eat in one of the restaurants or buy in some shop. A small Girona near the sea.
Next stop, Cabrera de Mar, small town where you can discover iberic small town called Ilturo, on the mountain of Burriac. And in Vilassar de Mar, you can visit the church of Sant Bautista, with its door decorated with sea motives.
In Premià de Mar you can discover the Museum of Textile printing, placed in the old Gas factory, one the most important museums in Catalunya related to textile printing.
Before arriving to El Masnou, we will stop in Ocata station, external neighbourhood of El Masnou. From this we highlight their wines, DO Alella and products such interesting as "Galetes de Vaixell" (biscuits) and "Masnovines" a delicious desert of biscuit, catalan cream and cognac.
We are getting to Barcelona, but we must stop in three towns yet before entering the capital:
From Montgat we recommend to walk through some of their multiple green spaces, like Park del Turonet, Park de les Bateries or Park de la riera d'en Font.
Badalona is already the first city joint to Barcelona. From this you can visit the roman Badalona ruins (Bétulo).
And from Sant Adriá del Besós, we invite you to visit the museum of Immigration History in Catalunya, or its air-raid shelter.
We have arrived. We are in Barcelona.
We hope, from Hotel Acapulco, that this small trip by train from Blanes to Barcelona can encourage you to come and enjoy of this interesting Catalunya.
We wait for you!
