After I accepted an interesting job offer in Barcelona, I moved to Mataro. Mataró is the capital of the Catalan Comarca Maresme in the province of Barcelona.
The history of the city goes back to the time of the Romans. The roman name of the town was Iluro. From this time there still exists a Roman villa, the Torre Llauder from the 1st century BC.
The city is located about 30 km northeast of Barcelona on the Mediterranean coast, on the so-called Costa del Maresme and is still considered a suburb of Barcelona.
