Visiting Barcelona by train

Although it’s pretty easy to drive to Barcelona and the beginning of the Ramblas (Passeig de Colom just after the Columbus statue), it’s also possible to visit Barcelona by train from Sitges. Here you find the instructions

Visit Barcelona by train:

  • If you want to visit Barcelona during your stay, you can go by car, or park your car (for free) in Sitges and take the train (€ 6,- for a return ticket) to the centre of Barcelona.
FROM SITGES TO BARCELONA
  • A lot of trains depart from Sitges to Barcelona every 7 min. in rush hours and every 10-15 min. the rest of the day. All the trains stop in Sants station and later in Passeig de Gracia station, which is in the city centre.
  • The first departure is at 4:48 h. The last departure is at 22:26 h, after this time you have to take the night bus.
FROM BARCELONA TO SITGES

  • You have 2 trains, one goes direction Sant Vicenç de Calders through Sitges, that’s very important, as there’s another one with the same direction that goes inland and doesn’t stops in Sitges, the other goes direction Vilanova i la Geltrú. The trip is about 40-45 min, depending of the train.

Pinchos

Tapas is a typical Spanish dish. It comes in several varieties. The Basque version are called ‘pinchos’. Pinchos are generally bite-sized portions served on slices of baguette.In Barcelona and Sitges you will find Pinchos restaurants as well. These restaurants are filled with these delicious snacks. When you’re fed up with all the wining and dining, or you’re just looking for some fast food after a day at the beach, we really can recommend this. In Sitges you will one at C/ San Pablo and C/Nou it’s the first street just before the church from the beach up hill.

Beaches

sitges-beach-2Sitges is known about the beaches (17 in total). On this link you will find more information about all the beaches in Sitges. When you come to the beach you can park at the boulevard, it’s the cheapest way, but unfortunately it’s most of the time pretty crowded (unless you arrive really early, which we never managed to do so). Another possibility is to park in one of the carparks, there is always place, the car stands save and out of the sun, but they’re much more expensive.
