Mataró

The municipality of Mataró is located in the Catalan region of Barcelona and has 114114 inhabitants. It is a coastal village that enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and mild winters.

Mataró has several textile industries. During the 20th century this industry became very important for the town’s economy and, despite of cyclical crisis, it is still nowadays the strongest sector.

The most important festivities are celebrated the last week of July and are called Oficio de las Santas, Santa Juliana and Sampronia. During those days there are sports contests, art exhibitions, castellers (human castles), dancing, workshops and musical shows.
