If your goal is a balanced lifestyle, in the regions of Barcelona there are many ways for you to achieve this. With 100 kilometres of beaches, 16 protected natural areas, five spa towns, three ‘Sports Tourism Destinations' and a cuisine rich in organic and local produce, you have many options within your reach to achieve maximum wellbeing. Would you like to discover some of the most notable?
Anti-stress spa. Spend a quiet, stress-relieving day at the Caldes de Montbui Spa and enjoy the pleasures of the water. Before you leave, make sure you visit the ancient Roman baths, the Lion Fountain and the Thermalia Museum, which houses an impressive collection by the sculptor Manolo Hugué – a close friend of Pablo Picasso. Remember that art soothes the soul!
Dream beaches. Between Sant Pol de Mar and Calella, there are several secluded coves that are authentic paradises, where all you can hear is the calming sound of the waves. The latter is also one of the three resorts in Costa Barcelona that have achieved Sports Holiday Destination status, so you will not be short of energetic activities, when you get tired of lying on the beach.
Delicious nature. Alt Berguedà is an ideal region for lovers of mountains and untamed landscapes, age-old traditions and good food. The Michelin stars that the restaurants Els Casals and Estany Clar boast are clear confirmation of the exceptional quality of their deep-rooted and creative cuisine.
