Miquel Biada and the first railway

The fascinating history of Mataró

industrialMiquel Biada was the driving force behind the first railway on the Iberian Peninsula, which was inaugurated in 1848 with a route between Barcelona and Mataró. This guided tour takes you around the sites connected to Biada’s life in the city, brings you closer to the time in which he lived and gives you an idea of the revolution brought about by the arrival of trains. The tour begins at Mataró City Council with a visit to its hall of fame, then passes through various sites, such as the house where he was born, and finishes on Plaça Miquel Biada, in front of the train station.
