Sant Pol de Mar
Carme Ruscalleda’s Michelin starred-restaurant is no longer there, but you have many reasons to visit Sant Pol de Mar. You can get there comfortably by train – like all the towns along the coast – and as soon as you arrive you’ll be entranced by the presence of the sea and the white terraced houses. Wander its streets, admire the modernista façades and walk slowly up to the peak, where the Shrine of Sant Pau awaits you with fantastic views over the Mediterranean. And find out where the expression “Sant Pol, quina hora és?” (Saint Pol, what time is it?) comes from, which, they say, still annoys some locals. Do all of this and lots more, but save time to visit the company Melmelades Calada, which produces jams using 100% natural and local products. By booking ahead, you can join a workshop to learn how to make your own jams. And, while you’re there, ask them why toast always falls on the buttered side... A finger-licking experience!
