El Santuari de la Misericordia (1)
La Verge de La Misericordia (the Madonna of the Compassion) is the benefactor saint of El Maresme. This church was built on Neo-gothic style, by the end of XIX century. Interesting for those interested on religious art and traditions.
Canet de Mar
"Not only beaches"
So, what you can do there?... in one word: walking. The town old centre is pleasant to wander around. There is a surprising amount of houses built on the Modernista style (Catalan version of Art Nouveau). Canet de Mar was the workplace and home of Lluis Domenech i Montaner (his best known works are the Palau de la Musica and the Hospital de Sant Pau i la Santa Creu, both in Barcelona). You can see buildings from other excellent architects as well along the street of the old town. The house of Domenech i Montaner is now a museum.
And you can keep walking outside the town. You have a couple of nice possibilities for light hill-walking, and feel the countryside just an hour away from Barcelona.
