Just 50 km from Barcelona and very close to the El Montnegre Natural Park, this town is now a first-class tourist destination with three magnificent beaches that have all been awarded the European blue flag. The beach of La Garbí has been awarded the Q for tourist quality award. The town has a wide range of accommodation available, with some 13,958 beds in hotels, campsites and apartments in the town. Calella is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country.
The town itself is a treasure-trove of culture and traditions. The charm of its old town, with its straight and narrow streets is centred on the Neoclassical Church of Santa Maria. Enjoy the views from its spectacular lighthouse, which was built in 1859 and the peace and quiet of a stroll through the Dalmau Park, or the Art Nouveau Passeig Manuel Puigvert, with its ancient plane trees, - all features that make this town, a must-see destination. Calella stands at the gateway to the natural parks of El Montnegre and El Corredor Park, which means it is an ideal spot for walks or bike tours.
