Canet de mar

Between the sea and mountain chains, we find Canet de Mar, a small Mediterranean town, famous for not only its wide sandy beaches and clear waters but also for interesting examples of Catalan Art Nouveau architecture.

Domènech i Montaner, architect, teacher, artist, politician and humanist lived in Canet de Mar. While he was living in Canet, he conceived important works as Palau de la Musica Catalana and Hospital de Sant Pau in Barcelona.
