Arenys de Mar

Guide to the Municipalities
The inspiration for Salvador Espriu's mythical Sinera still retains the charm of a traditional seafaring town, and boasts a rich architectural and festival-related heritage. Strolling along the watercourse, the social and commercial hub, or the sandy streams and tasting the seafood dishes at its harbour restaurants after visiting the fish market are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed by visitors, in addition to discovering other treasures of this town, including the Baroque altarpiece of the Church of Santa Maria, a cemetery full of monuments, the old Calisay liqueur distillery and the Frederic Marès Lace Museum.

The essentials

- Visit the church of Santa Maria.
- Admire the Modernista sculptures of the cemetery.
- Enjoy the beach and the sea.
- Walk along the Riera.
- Go to the fish auction, at the fishing cooperative in the harbour.

Economic activity

Tourism is currently one of the town’s main sources of wealth. Commerce, with a popular weekly market on Saturdays, and the extensive culinary offering help drive the local economy. Agriculture, which has been a primary activity in recent decades, has lost momentum to fishing. Water sports and the shipyards are of great importance within the maritime sector.
