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.
Art Noveau in Canet de Mar
In Canet there is not only the beach and the mountains, it also has an architectural legacy to offer: Lluís Domènech i Montaner House-Museum, the architect famous for having designed the Palau de la Música and the Hospital de Santa Creu i Sant Pau.
This House-Museum is made up of Masia Rocosa, a 17thC Catalan traditional farmhouse where the architect conceived some of his works, and the Casa Domènech (1919), the house that he designed for his family.
You can ask at the reception for further information.
Santa Florentina Castle Title
It is possible to visit the castle and its gardens, guided by a guide. A the end of the visit, you will be offered a glass of champaign.
Pedracastell is a 309m high mountain between Canet de Mar and Sant Iscle de la Vallalta, in the region of Maresme. There we can see the entire city of Canet, Sant Pol and a part of Arenys de Mar from a very good perspective.
You can appreciate Vallalta and its valleys, the Montnegre, the Serra dels termes, the Serra d’en Sala and, of course, the Cap de Bou. It is a great place to go for a walk or for a ride and to explore.
On the top, there is Pedracastell’s Cross. From there you can enjoy a fantastic view over the sea.
