Granollers (Catalan pronunciation:  [ɡɾənuˈʎes]) is a city near Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain. It is the capital and most densely populated city of the comarca of Vallès Oriental.

Granollers is now a bustling business centre, having grown from a town dominated by Catalonia's textile industry that was so prominent during the 19th Century. However, in the southern portion of the municipality, the Palou area retains the agricultural characteristics of the past. [3]

Granollers forms a conurbation with Canovelles, Les Franqueses del Vallès and the neighbourhood of La Torreta in La Roca del Vallès. The city is crossed by the Congost river, a tributary of the Besòs river. It is considered to be situated in the second crown of Barcelona metropolitan area. It is around 25 km north-east of the centre of Barcelona.

Notable landmarks

La Porxada, a Renaissance building which served as a grain storehouse, is an emblematic building. On Corró street, there is the ancient hospital of Sant Domènec, now the Francesc Tarafa theatre, a good example of restored Gothic architecture. The church of Sant Esteve in the city centre, also contains Gothic elements from the 15th Century along with an octagonal tower. [4]
