You're gonna want to SAVE this list. With a 6th extra special addition to the list!

So, we asked you all to share your favourite places for bread here in Maresme. 

Here's what you said 👇

🍞 Forn de la Plaça, Alella - variety of sliced bread including cumin and walnut, kamut, pumpkin seeds 

🍞 Cal Mosso, Vilassar de Dalt - voted best Pa de Pagès in 2021 

🍞 Salueda Pastissers, Sant Pol - great pan integral

🍞 Cucos Origen's - fantastic chia and corn breads

🍞 Juliette, Vilassar de Mar - delicious bread all round

And we're adding in a 6th curve ball 👇

🍞 Casa Parera, Mataró - this is actually a restaurant but the bread roll is so good that it needs a mention. It's called the 'Rodó al Josper amb mantega fumada sal gruixuda' and it's amazing!

Anywhere we've missed. Please drop them in the comments below 👇

Construction of the Basílica Santa María de Mataró dates back to 1685. It was built by extending the space of the old 15th century church on the eastern side.

“I now know that ‘food’ is not just the stuff we put in our mouths but the thoughts we think, the emotions we feel and the purpose by which we live. We are holistic beings and we need to look at health in that way - the sum of all parts.”

Originally from Galicia (via London and Barcelona), Silvia is now based in Cabrils, one of the lovely villages just inland from the Maresme coastline. 

You can read more about Silvia’s journey to becoming a holistic health coach in the Stories section on our website.

The Maresme is a very beautiful area that combines the mountains, vineyards and natural parks with the beaches of the Mediterranean. It’s a particularly great area if you enjoy sport. You can run along the coast, cycle in the mountains and windsurf in the sea. The best bit is that you have all this only 30 minutes from Barcelona.

The Maresme Coast has a more 'local' feel all year round unlike other destinations close to Barcelona such as Sitges or Sant Cugat. There is easy access to the Costa Brava and the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and in Spring it is even possible to come off the slopes in the afternoon in time for a sundowner in a chiringuito at dusk.  The Serralada Litoral Natural Park - a vast area of woodland that provides the backdrop to the attractive Maresme villages, the renowned local wines, award-winning beaches, the numerous sports clubs and fantastic local restaurants (including Michelin-starred) all add to the region’s growing appeal.
