While staying in Barcelona I thought it would be interesting to visit nearby coastal town of Sitges for a few days. Sitges is situated 35 kilometers from Barcelona and that's just a 45 minutes train-ride along the coast.
Sitges has always been a place which has enchanted artists and visitors from all over the world. Many painters, sculptors and writers settled here at the end of the 19th century. Nowadays Sitges is a beachtown that is packed with resorts and hotels and a popular place for families and the LGBT-community.
Although I loved to spend some time on the beach in Sitges, I prefer the city of Barcelona which has more beaches, more nightlife and a more authentic vibe.
