Want to know about the best beaches around Barcelona? BSC. Travel tells you which towns are worth looking at, thinking about the autumn vacation on the beach.

The Costa del Meresme is a Spanish stretch of the Mediterranean coast that is not as well-developed as the Costa del Sol or Costa Dorada. Here, in the outskirts of Barcelona (only half an hour drive), there are no grandiose attractions, placer bars, noisy discos. But there are clean beaches, baroque churches, Roman aqueducts and pine groves. And the prices for rest at local resorts are the most sparing in the country.

Beaches of Mataro

Motaro - a suburb of Barcelona

2000-year-old Mataro - the capital of the resort region of Costa de Meresme in the vicinity of Barca. The city is beautiful and compact: on one side it is washed by the sea, on the other - it is closed by a mountain ridge. There are many green areas for recreation, and shopaholics are waiting for a fascinating journey through all sorts of markets, shops, shopping centers. Mataro remembers the times of the Roman Empire. It is no accident that tourists crowd in the crowds of the ruins of the ancient Roman villa Torre Lyauda, ​​which survived well from the first century BC: you can even consider mosaic floor drawings and wander along the fortress wall. In Mataro, there is a fairly large port, noisy city beaches with white sand and small pebbles, several curious museums.
