Malgrat de Mar, located on the Barcelona Coast - Maresme is the last town before the beginning of the famous Costa Brava, almost halfway between the cities of Barcelona and Girona. It is the ideal place to discover and explore Catalonia, and to enjoy its typical Mediterranean beaches, its culture and its peacefulness.
The Astillero Beach stretches from the border with the neighboring town of Santa Susanna to the Sant Genís de Palafolls Riera: a kilometre-long stretch of coarse sand where you can swim in the Mediterranean Sea, walk around the shore or have a refreshment at one of its chiringuitos. It is located at the most touristic part of the city and it is just right in front of the Sumus Hotel Monteplaya.
The Malgrat Center Beach spreads from the Sant Genía de Palafolls Riera to the Pomereda Road. It is almost as big as the Astillero Beach, and is located right at Malgrat de Mar's center, making it the most frequented one by its inhabitants.
The Conca Beach spreads from the Pomereda Road to the Tordera River. It is the largest beach in Malgrat de Mar, being over 2.5 kilometers wide. The Conca Beach also enjoys the privilege of being a protected area, and as a result it is one of the few virgin beaches on the Barcelona Coast - Maresme. The perfect beach for nature lovers, it has sand dunes, a diverse wildlife, and is located next to the Tordera River, the mightiest subterranean river in Europe.
The Punta de la Tordera Beach is located at Malgrat's Camping Zone and extends up to the mouth of the Tordera River, a protected space ideal for nature enthusiasts. At the end of the beach, a Nudist zone is located.

The temple's current history starts in 1761, when the Barcelonian architect Francesc Trilles got elected by popular jury to design it.
The church's refurbishing ended in 1783, with the aspec it maintains to this day. Its general design is functional, clean and austere, marked by the first academic and anti-baroque culture's impacts. The church was burned and sacked during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), losing its most precious artifacts (two monstrances, a cross and an organ) which were restores in the forties.
