Sitges Barcelona , is a lovely option for a day trip if you are in Barcelona for more than 3-4 days, to explore our life style in a small town outside the city.
One of the easiest one is Sitges, a lovely and charm small town by the coast, only 25 minutes from BCN by train, I also recommend a quick scape to Sitges if you get a rainy day in BCN, as the weather in Sitges is usually very good.
The best way to get there is by train, buy a return ticket which is around 10€, from Sants station or Paseo de Gracia/ Gran Vía, trains departure every 5-10 minutes so just get there and take the first one.
Once you get to Sitges Barcelona, look for Hotel Avenida Sofía, which, by the way, as one of the most beautiful spa I’ve ever been. There is a restaurant here called Pic Nic it could be your first stop, have a drink and tapas and keep your walk along the beach, you Will find a legendary place named Chiringuito, the first chiringuito in our story, this will be my option for just a drink.
If you want to sunbathe or have a swim walk till you get to La Playa del Balmins, for me THE BEST BEACH, as the others are usually too busy. There is a beautiful Chiringuito around, La Caleta de Sitges, fancy another drink??? Go ahead, you are safe on the perfect spot for a SIESTA zzzzzzz
For your sightseeing, you could start by Iglesia de San Bartolomé , from here, just get lost, find your way in and out, take a picture @ the mirador…. Find la Plaza Del Por Verde, and look for the gorgeous mansions that Sitges offers, you will love it.
If you want to eat PAELLA, the best One is @ Los Vikingos, in calle del pecado, and There is another place called, Can Xavi, I particularly like this place, cos I find very attractive to eat outside, under the pine trees, and it is actually very central.
There is Also a nice Beach Club, for a cocktail, drinks… El Vivero, another MUST, even if it`s just a coffee, go ahead, take a sit on enjoy the beautiful sea view, but as I always say…. walk, walk and walk till you find your perfect spot.
For the way back, same train station will bring you back to my loving Barcelona. If you go there and find some special place and want to share it with us, PLEASE DO IT ABOVE!
ENJOY FEEL & LOVE SITGES BARCELONA
