The authenticity of the mixture
Summer officially begins with Saint John´s Eve. Although everything in June is a space of transit, the magic of this night changes people´s mind-set. It is as if time were to stretch and the heat, in the afternoons were to portray a very characteristic image of our lifestyle: A half hour's nap under the shade of a palm tree.
The beach in summer is filled with the most picturesque pictures. There is a delicious mix of people of all nations, ages, styles and conditions. You have the guy from Galicia sitting on the right and on the left the German, on the opposite there is someone from Lleida and sitting behind you is an Andorran. The amenities make our beaches perfect for everyone. For the young and old, for those who like to carry sandwiches and who prefer the beach bars. Its proximity to the city allows you ? to leave the umbrella when it is time to eat and to come back, after a classic coffee with ice, to digest in the shade with a good book.
At night we do not go very far from the beach. Sunset is the perfect time to get all prepared and go for a walk along the promenade. Meet someone, talk a little and buy an ice cream cone and enjoy a walk along the beach called “Playa Grande”. Then, depending on the programming, during “Las Noches de Verano” (Calella Summer Nights) you can enjoy a wide range of concerts and shows in different parts of town.
And when September arrives, a little more red-skinned and tanned, still under the spell of the habaneras and the heat, we are ready to welcome autumn and return to a routine full of emotions and discover, during another year, the little pleasures that make Calella a privileged city.

How were we, the Calellenses five centuries ago? We were probably not that numerous, nor as cosmopolitan. But surely our ancestors were as optimistic, active and close like us. Otherwise, they would not have been able to develop the transatlantic trade that turned our city into what we are currently.See more
