Maresme Insider Guides: the Lucas Fox team choose their top tips and recommendations for when visiting the Maresme

Petit Moll

MARESME-Petit Moll 1

“If you are spending some time during the summer on the Maresme coast, check out Petit Moll in Vilassar de Mar, a seafood restaurant right on the beach which offers delicious tapas and great wine. On Tuesdays traditional Habaneras singers will serenade you as you eat.”

Parc de la Serralada Litoral

“If you want to escape the heat in the summer months, try some of the envigorating walks in the Parc de la Serralada Litoral, the region’s beautiful natural Park which offers spectacular views of Barcelona, Maresme and the Vallès Oriental. Also depending on the day and if the weather is clear, you can catch glimpses of Montserrat and beyond.”

Alta Alella Vineyards

MARESME-Alta Alella 3

“For wine buffs, a visit to the Alta Alella vineyards and cellar is an absolute must. These wines have been served in award-winning restaurants around the world and is the culmination of a family project that begun more than 20 years ago. You can organize your own tasting session as well as enjoy a trip around the beautiful vineyards in a 4×4.”

Local fiestas


“The Maresme region is steeped in history and many of its villages and towns offer ‘festa majors’, which offer traditional foods, dancing, kids activities and the like. It’s a great way to get a feel of the region. You can find out more by picking up a copy of the local El Clau magazine which is free and can be picked up in restaurants and shops.”

Jaume, Premia de Dalt

MARESME-Jaume Premia de Dalt 2

“For Sunday brunch I love the square (plaça) in the beautiful village of Premia de Dalt. The restaurant offers a range of tapas and larger meals and if you have kids there is loads of space for them to run around and leave you in peace!”
