Nicknamed the St Tropez of Spain, Sitges is great day trip destination.
If you fancy a day tour out of Barcelona, visit Sitges, a nearby town. Only 40 minutes by train from the centre of Barcelona, this is well worth a trip on a sunny day. As the gay capital of the Europe, its vibrant and colourful beach village atmosphere is the perfect backdrop for enjoying paella or Esquiexada (a local gourmet salad made with cod and Romesco sauce). With beautiful modernistic buildings, along with a good mix of traditional village lifestyle and an international vibe, Sitges has a lot to offer if you’re looking for something a little different from the bright lights of Barcelona. When there, dine at La Fragata overlooking the beautiful 17th century church, or at Al Fresco restaurant in the middle of town. Both are great examples of Catalan cuisine.
