Mataró

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mataró is a city in Catalonia, Spain.

Get in[edit]

Take a train from Barcelona airport; travelling time is 1 hour. One-way tickets are €2.25, and a T-10 Zone 3 ticket is €17.40 for 10 trips in either direction. All trains leaving the airport pass through Mataró; they depart half-hourly between 6am and 11pm.

Taxis from the train station to hotels in the center of Mataró are approximately €3.

Get around[edit]

It's small enough to walk just about anywhere in Mataro. If you're feeling particularly lazy though - the Mataro Bus network has 10 different lines and a very clearly laid out map at every bus stop (EUR 2.00 per journey or you can use a T-10 single zone card).

See[edit]

Some Roman ruins.

Various architectural works by Puig i Cadafalch.

Do[edit]

  • Hire a boat at the marina.
  • Run or swim at the beach.
  • Rock climb on the artificial wall in one of Mataró's parks.

Buy[edit]

The buzzing market at Placa de Cuba (every Saturday morning) is good to pick up fresh fruit and veg - as well as to soak up the atmosphere.

Eat[edit]

  • Pizzeria Lluis, Baixada Escaletes 10, 93 796 29 68. Great food, friendly staff and quite cheap—pasta dishes for €5-6. They only have menus in Catalan, though, so you may need to ask the staff for advice.
  • Nou Mundial, +34 93 789 15 97. Camí Ral, 548. This bar and restaurant serves a variety of good food, including pizza (€8-€9), paella (€10-€15), seafood and tapas. They cope surprisingly well with large groups of foreigners with no reservations.
  • La botigueta del Malambo Camí Ral 540. 93 798 80 59. Food to take away and products from Argentina. Weekend menu 11.95€.
  • Cavall D'Or, Camí Ral, 624, 93 757 87 10. Cheap and tasty Chinese food, such as Sizzling Chicken Plate for €6.45.
