The Comarca (county) Maresme, is in the province of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It forms a narrow strip at the foot of the slopes and mountains of the Catalan coast (Serralada Litoral), the mountain ranges of San Mateu, Corredor and Montnegre (the last two form a natural park).
In the south, the Maresme is limited from the Mediterranean. From the country side Maresme is framed (from east to west) from the comarques Selva, Vallès Oriental and Barcelonès.
The Capital of the Maresme is Mataró, a city with a long industrial tradition.
Because of the excellent Mediterranean climate, Maresme is home of a large number of nurseries and vegetable farms. Unlike in previous years, the manufacturing companies today are modern and direct their attention to the production of high quality goods.
