In summer the time between 7 and 7 and a half in the morning is a time not to be missed ... the light, colours, clouds, sea, seagulls, pigeons ... and in many cases solitude and reflection time. In short, everything you might be looking for in the "urbanites".
Holidays in 2012 from Lezo, Pais Vasco to Calella, Catalonia. We stayed in Calella and visited this town and its neighboring villages. We talked along the costa brava, on the beach, full of tourists, especially foreigners. A good place to unwind.
This is a place where you can come into contact with the vast sea, and also with small, almost deserted beaches which are almost always guarded by the lighthouse of Calella. It is a quiet place where the sunrises invites you to relax.
The Promenade in Calella is a very peaceful place where you can find a variety of activities. At one end of the walkway there is the main entrance to the beach where there is a lot of entertainment for both tourists and locals. As you walk along it you stumble upon typical bars of Calella. You can even find beach bars which have sofas and pillows on the sand, great service at a reasonable price. As you reach the end of the walkway you enter a quiet, small-town atmosphere.
Faces staring at the horizon, seasons take over the early hours of the morning, the street lamps squander their light as dawn and overshadows them. The sea is a delicate strand behind the trees. All go in search of sunrise.
Located in the center of Calella, the church is known for its robustness and simplicity.
Built in the eighteenth century, it was rebuilt after the civil war, which is a sure reason why its interior is simple, with little imagery.
Interesting that it is found in a square which tourism of the area has turned it into a commercial hub, for walking and restaurants where there is continuous noise during the summer.
The Museu Municipal Archive of Calella, Josep M. Codina i Bagué, in situated the historic center of the city of Maresme, which is a multidisciplinary local museum which researches, preserves and disseminates the various aspects of the city´s heritage. It is housed in a 17th Century house, connected by a large courtyard, which is in a new building that is facing Bartrina street. The total area of the museum facilities measures 1,145 m2.
The place that I´m talking about is located in a small place on the Maresme coast, situated in Calella de la Costa about 50km away from Barcelona. It is a place featuring rocks and small coves that is completely different from its neighboring Costa Brava, extraordinary good beach weather and much to discover!!
