Dating back to Roman times, Mataro is the city to run to, not just to get some stuff done in a coworking venue, but also to take a long gawk at a 1st Century BC Roman bath-house, the "Torre Llauder". The original Roman road is now the coastal N-II highway, so the history buff can have a trip down ancient times traversing this to get to the Roman villa of Can Llauder.
The city had its first railroad in 1848 and it was the starting point for the marathon events during the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. Mataro was declared a city by royal decree in the 19th Century, as it lacked the number of residents for city status at the time. It now has a population of 122,932 souls living and working within the town's borders. Coworking spaces have started to spring up in the city to cater to the locals' needs for workspace, without having to linger in cafes and bars with the temptation of wafting aromas of succulent ham on freshly baked crunchy bread taunting them.
Sitting south of Costa Brava between Cabrera de Mar and Sant Andreu de Llavaneres about 30km northeast of Barcelona, Mataro has its fair share of energetic and fearless tech savvy youth chasing their own dreams of success. It is now an accepted career to be an entrepreneur rather than a civil servant and Spain's startup ecosystem is blooming. Apart from the lure of a low cost of living, an abundance of brilliant food, wine and sherry to be had, Spain has a healthy supply of skilled engineers and developers gagging to get involved with startups. This is why the locals are staying at home and meandering nomads with laptops are taking up residence in the country. Coworking is providing the space for these intrepid souls where they know they can learn from their peers, network and have some fun along the way.
