Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈsantə kuˈɫomə ðə ɣɾəməˈnɛt]) (informally simply kent as Santa Coloma; historically kent as Gramenet del Besòs an aw) is a ceety in Catalonie, Spain. It is seetiatit on the sooth-east side o the Litoral range, wi the Puig Castellar (299 m) as its heichest point, on the left bank o the Besòs river: the municipalities o Sant Adrià de Besòs an Badalona separate it frae the coast. It is essentially a banlieue (or suburb) o Barcelona.

The aurie haes been inhabitit frae at least the Iberic period, an the remains o a Iberic veelage hae been fund on Puig Castellar. The airtifacts are hosit in a museum in La Torre Balldovina, a biggin datin frae the 18t hunderyear. Ither notewirthy biggins include the renaissance palace o La Torre Pallaresa an the noucentista Clínica Mental.

In November 2008, the ceety made warldwide news bi pittin solar panels on tap o crypts in the local cemetery, in an ettlin tae help fecht aff climate change.[1]
