Sant Pol de Mar

What Time Is It?

Sant Pol de Mar is a municipality of about 5,000 people located on the Mediterranean coast in the comarca of El Maresme between Canet de Mar and Calella.

This lovely town is centred around a single main street where you'll find most of the shops, bars and restaurants and its main monument is the Romanesque Hermitage of Sant Pau.

The town has about 2,000 metres of coastline but the two main beaches are Escaletes Beach, which is next to train station, and La Platjola, about 50 metres to your left as you leave the station.

An interesting anecdote about Sant Pol is that apparently there used to be a sundial by the station and the council built a cover for it to protect it when it rained but which also stopped the sunlight from hitting it so the way irritate the is to continually ask them "What time is it?" or "Quina hora és?"
