A small inland town in El Maresme with a Roman past
Palafolls is an inland municipality of a little over 9,000 inhabitants in the comarca of El Maresme, which borders on Santa Susanna, Blanes, Tordera and Malgrat de Mar.
The origins of Palafolls go back to Roman times and the modern name is based on the Roman name of Palatiolo.
The centre of the municipality is Les Ferreries with the church of l'Assumpció de la Mare de Déu, designed by the 19th century architect Miquel Garriga i Roca, and the Council building and schools.
Other parts of Palafolls include the village of Sant Genís de Palafolls, formed by Sant Genís with its Romanesque church and the Ciutat Jardí urbanisation.
The barris of Santa Maria and Sant Lluís, Mas Carbó and Mas Reixac, part of which is in the municipality of Tordera, also form important centres in the municipality.
