Old town centre
Fondest memory: We went for a nice walk to Pineda from the resort of Santa Susanna, where we had our holiday base.
It was nice to explore the old centre of Pineda, after seeing nothing but hotels for days.
Notice the Catalan flag hanging from the windows - the day we visited was the 11th of September - the Catalan National Day.
