Montgat is a municipality in the province of Barcelona, in Catalonia. Belonging to the region of El Maresme, it is only 14km from Barcelona.
The urban center rises 34 meters above sea level. Four beaches make up the coastline of this town: Cala Taps beach, La Morera beach, Sant Joan beach and Monsolís beach.
Originally, Montgat was a small Iberian town. The excavations that have been carried out show the existence of some Neolithic settlements in the term, approximately from 3500 BC.
Today agriculture and fishing, which were once the main activities, have almost completely disappeared. There are some industries of construction materials (cement), porcelain, chemical and pharmaceutical products, and metallurgy. Its Les Mallorquines neighbourhood, formerly industrial and today mostly residential, forms an urban continuum with Badalona.
We encourage you to visit this beautiful town so close to the Catalan capital.
