Mataró: a walk through time

The fascinating history of Mataró

Did you know that King Charles of Austria came to meet his wife, Elisabeth Christine of Brunswick, in Mataró? The princess arrived in the city on 25 July 1708, in the middle of the city festival, and celebrations were held with fireworks, dancing and music. But her first night in Mataró became a nightmare for Elisabeth because of the mosquitoes, which bit her so much that, the next day, she couldn’t even face seeing the king, her future husband! Learn about the history of Mataró through anecdotes and readings, as you explore its streets, buildings and squares and enjoy the city’s most unique spots.
