Destination guide

A little city with all the best of a scenic Spanish escape

Set 20 miles northeast of Barcelona, Granollers is a lively little city that will give you a taste of festive local fun and a break from the big urban center to the south. Nestled between a coastal mountain range and a sprawling national park, it offers contemporary museums, busy commercial centers, and a trail of medieval and ancient ruins that will satisfy any student of Spanish history. Whether you aim to stay local and stick to perusing the street market or resolve to head into the mountains for a wildlife adventure, Granollers vacation rentals will make your visit easy.

Things to do

Play a medieval merchant in Granollers' historic monuments

The sights in Granollers are a mix of historic wonders and family-friendly delights. For the history buff in your group, there's La Porxada, a Renaissance-era open-air building that served as a grain storehouse, fish market, and trading center. L'Adoberia, or the old tannery, is half-archeological site, half-museum. Bordered by the remains of the city's medieval wall, it features exhibits on the history of Granollers as a center of industry. Kids will be excited by the Museum of Natural Sciences. It hosts family-friendly activities and presentations on the area's geology and wildlife.


Visit serene farms and boisterous street markets

This bustling business center is dotted with historic buildings, manicured courtyards, and vibrant public squares. Many Granollers vacation rentals are on picturesque streets perfect for a long walk or a bike ride. If you're in town on a Thursday, you're in luck. The street market starts early and is where locals and visitors stock up on meat, produce, clothes, books, and everything else. Guides offer tours of the most archeologically important medieval sights, and Palou, a neighborhood on the south side of town, is a protected architectural region, home to rolling fields and farmland.


Lush summer mountainsides and wintery chill

Protected from Mediterranean humidity by coastal mountain ranges, Granollers vacation rentals enjoy comfortable weather throughout spring, summer, and fall. Summer is the most popular time for vacationers flocking to the Pyrenees for fresh air and pretty views, so book early and be ready to share the sidewalks with other visitors. Spring and fall are the rainier seasons, but you can stay dry in local museums and tapas bars. Winters are chilly, and the nearby mountains will often be blanketed with snow. You'll find bargain rates if you're willing to bundle up.

Natural features

You'll be grateful for Granollers' grand green spaces

Granollers is crossed by the Congost River and set in a valley between 2 mountainous nature parks: Montnegre-Corredor Park to the south, and Montseny Natural Park to the north. Montseny is particularly popular with visitors. It's the only biosphere reserve in the area, protected because of its wildlife, plant life, and archeological importance. Hikes in the woods take you along babbling creeks with mini-waterfalls, up mountain peaks, and through habitats ranging from Mediterranean to Alpine. Set off on your own or with a local expert who can guide you to likely places for bird and boar sightings.
