This beach town outside Barcelona is a gay mecca, which means lots of bars and clubs and rainbow flags and open-minded travelers from around the globe. It's also charming architecturally, with winding streets and stone buildings leading to the ocean front. Definitely worth spending an afternoon or evening.

Tired of partying til' dawn in hot, sticky, dirty Barcelona (don't get me wrong, I love, love, love Barcelona)? Spend 3 Euro on a 40 minute train ride north, to enjoy cool, clean, crisp and sunny Sitges.
Barcelona may be technically on the water, but Sitges is truly sea-side. This idyllic Spanish pueblo has everything: nightlife, awesome restaurants, kilometers of beach and beachfront property, attractive visitors, shopping, and opportunities for hiking/exploring. On a clear day, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven: get lost wandering around the winding, small-town streets; spend the day sipping caipirinhas on the beach; enjoy dinner and wine from your beachfront balcony.

This is a beach resort area about 30 minutes by train from Barcelona. The many beaches are beautiful and clean, and there are an abundance of restaurants, many of which are quite good. The area is not so blessed with good museums. It is very easy and pleasant to walk around.

Juxtaposed between being a traditional walled coastal town and a high-camp, gay-friendly getaway...Sitges manages to be a modern, funky and liberal beach resort while retaining its heritage and tradition. Not an easy thing to do.
Architecturally it is a blend of old-world charm with windy alleyways and a classic Gothic church, along with some nice 1930's-50's buildings found on the seafront.
The town is justly famous for its film and arts ferstivals and it's Carnival is one of the best in Spain.
For gastronomes fish and seafood tapas (or main courses) abound and are served with some of the regions great wines - white and sparkling wine from Penedes or red wine from Priorat.
Sitges has 17 good white sandy beaches with nice clean water, strung out along the long seafront boulevard. Being an international destination there is no short of people on the beaches in high season, with the obligatory poseurs, but that adds to the attraction of the town.
But the main reason to come to Sitges is it's cosmopolitan lifestyle and amazing nightlife. There is a real "joie de vivre" going on in this town, so if you do decide to visit then prepare yourself to live life to the full! Vive la Sitges!

If you have time enough to spend one day in the sea side, you have to go to Sitges, very nice, quiet (day time), fashion, nice views, nice beach, very nice restaurants etc...
Just get a train in Sants Estacio and you will be there in 30 minuts...

Do yourself a favor while your in Barcelona and take a day and ride the train down to the beautiful seaside town of Sitges. Go down to the beach and enjoy some delicious grilled sardines, anchovies and tapas with a nice pitcher of Sangria. You will thank the travel gods to no end!
