The picturesque town of Alella is one of the Costa Maresme's best kept secrets. Steeped in history and dotted with eye-catching buildings and mansions from centuries gone by, Alella also has a strong and well-established wine-making tradition, and for those in the know, a tour of Alella's wineries is a must during any stay in Costa Maresme, Barcelona's North Coast.
Distance to Barcelona is approximately 13 miles, whereas El Prat Barcelona Airport is 20 miles away. Moreover, the town is conveniently located off the A-19 motorway, which is connected to Barcelona's northern ring road, and is also served by public transport in the form of several bus lines.
Alella is small in size but big in amenities, featuring gyms, supermarkets, cafes, independent stores, medical facilities, schools, and sport complexes. These all make Alella a very liveable town whether you are here on a summer holiday or considering to move to the area permanently.
Last but not least, and like the rest of Costa Maresme, Alella is the ideal base for outdoor enthusiasts. The area has hiking and cycling trails at nearby Serralada Marina Park (which also offers spectacular panoramic views over Barcelona), and is within easy reach of local beaches like Ocata and El Masnou, which are only a short 10-minute drive from the town centre.
