Located in thirty minutes drive from Barcelona, there is a unique town called Sitges. Once it was a little fishermen’s village, now it is a picturesque haven. Sitges hosts a carnival in February-March and a film festival in October. It is considered to be a center of culture for Catalonia. Some people refer to it as Saint-Tropez of Spain and Ibiza in miniature. The beaches of Sitges received blue flags awarded by the EU, meaning that they have in fact really clear water. A couple of these beaches:
- La Playa de Sitges
- Playa Balmins
- Playa de Sant Sebastia
- Playa del Hombre Muerto
- Sausalito Beach
Blanes is one more place worth-visiting quite close to Barcelona. The town is antique and you can visit a couple of ancient cites there, like castles, basilicas and abbeys. Firework festival that takes place in Blanes is also an event that you can enjoy while staying there. There is the Festa menor which is a family celebration in mid-August. People walk an eight-mile trek with family, children and even pets. The reward is a memento and a slice of watermelon. If you want to enjoy the nature even more, than you definitely should visit Botanical Gardens there.
