Granollers, a small Catalan city in the region of Vallès Oriental, and, while not famous for its tourist attractions, it definitely has enough to entice those wiling to venture off the beaten path. With a population of around 60,000, the city is rapidly developing in the industry and business sectors, attracting professionals and tourists from all over Spain and Europe. Not far from Barcelona or La Rioja, Spain's wine region, the city is a perfect place to stop over and relax before continuing on exploring the larger Catalan region or Spain. With the amount of Granollers hotels increasing with each year too, this is a gem you'll be glad you visited.
What's Granollers Like?
Don't be persuaded that Granollers is a new kid on the block. Quite the contrary, its roots go back to medieval times when the town played an important role during the era of the feudal lords. Hidden away places and relics include the old city walls, the old Tannery of Ginebreda, the Bell Tower of the Parish Church of Saint Esteve, or La Porxada, which translates simply as "The Porch". If you prefer to give history a break on vacation, and flexing your plastic is more your thing, then you'll be happy to discover that the city center provides lots of clothes, shoes and boutique shops to satiate all small or large cravings for a bit of retail therapy. Being a manageable size, you can shop without dropping. Granollers hotels are located in all points of the town, so you can choose to stay close to the attractions you prefer.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Granollers
Expect to hear and see a lot more Catalan here than you would in cosmopolitan Barcelona. Whereas the locals will be happy to help you in Spanish, a few Catalan phrases will win you lots of admiring compliments. Many Granollers hotels are up to date with their larger city counterparts, and can offer 24-hour front desk support, onsite restaurants, pools, and even spas and fitness centers. Meeting rooms are also available in some hotels, so don't be surprised to bump into a few suits on the way to the pool. More locally oriented curiosities include the Museu de Granollers, the rather sizeable Roca Umbert Arts Factory, and the villa-esque Natural Sciences museum. Ask at reception for their recommendations on the best places to eat, as a plethora of choice means you may be stuck for choice. If you're lucky, they may even correct your Catalan pronunciation too.
