Calella is located in the Spanish region of Catalonia on the Costa Maresme, which is commonly regarded as being part of the better-known Costa Brava. This thriving modern town is just 50 kilometres north of Barcelona - its accessibility and three kilometres of sandy beaches make this the tourist capital of the Costa Maresme.
The beach is obviously the biggest pull for the majority of tourists but Calella has other attractions, not least of which is its proximity to Barcelona. Trains run every half hour to the great metropolis which must surely rate as one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world.
The old part of Calella is worth a visit for its many ancient buildings, the beautiful Dalmau natural park and the old-style narrow streets where you can taste some of the real Spain in the tapas bars and restaurants serving local Catalan specialties.
Every month throughout the year colourful fiestas bring the streets to life with processions, parades, music, dancing and much general merrymaking.
Throughout the summer months you can see the famous Sardana danced down at the beachfront every Sunday evening. Local people join hands to perform this fiercely cherished Catalonian dance, which was banned under Francos fascist regime. They move in circles to symbolise the brotherhood and unity of the Catalonian people, accompanied by local musicians (known as coblas) playing flute-like instruments.
