Which you can visit in the surroundings of barcelona?

Sitges is the perfect place for making a one day trip.

Sitges is located on the southern coast of Barcelona and is leading tourist destination in Spain. The small town offers excellent quality of the sea and beaches and it has become the preferred destination.

THE HISTORY IN SITGES

If you fancy a bit of history and you want to see some historic buildings, you should not miss churches of Saint Bartholomew and Santa Tecla in the heart of the city center. La Casa de la Vila, nineteenth-century Gothic revival building and Palau Maricel, are other attractions of the city. Sitges can offer beautiful architecture and it is also home of painter Santiago Rusiñol who settled in Sitges and made this Catalan town meeting point for intellectuals and artists.

BEACHES

And if you get tired of the history and museum, just feel free to explore all 17 beaches, one of the main attractions in the city. More than four kilometers of white beaches stretch along the coast is a perfect place to enjoy some leisure time. On some beaches you can also practice nudism.

SPORT IN SITGES

Sitges is home to major sporting events like the Half Marathon Championships, Beach Volleyball Tournament, Beach Rugby Tournament, the Enduro Championship in Spain and many more.

I also recommend visiting the Garraf Natural Park, a rocky landscape where you can practice many different activities such as hiking, mountain biking or climbing.

Sitges is located around half an  hour from Barcelona and it’s a great place for a trip with your family or friends. This town offers everything from culture to spectacular beaches and it’s definitely worth visiting.
