Sant Andreu de Llavaneres (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsant ənˈdɾew ðə ʎəβəˈneɾəs]) is a municipality located 36 km north of Barcelona (Catalonia) (Spain), along the Mediterranean coast, between Mataró and Sant Vicenç de Montalt. It belongs to the Maresme comarca and the Barcelona province. The short name is simply Llavaneres.

Llavaneres faces the sea to the east and a natural park to the west. The village has a mixed agricultural and residential character and has become a popular vacation and summer-residence location for people living in Barcelona over the last forty years.

Good communications with Barcelona, the Maresme coast and the Mediterranean axis of France and Spain include a train line to Barcelona, as well as the C-32 highway and the N-2 road.

Sant Andreu de Llavaneres is today well known for its upscale sailing in summer, its spring greenpeas, and a panini-style bread called coca. In 2006 and 2007, the Spain Salsa Festival was held in Llavaneres with many visitors coming form abroad.[1]
