From Barcelona: You can get there by train or by car. The easiest way is by the Spanish Railways (RENFE). The journey by train from Barcelona costs €3.00, and takes around 35 minutes. Direct trains leave from Passeig de Gràcia or Sants stations - from Plaça de Catalunya a change is required at Barcelona-Sants. There are four trains an hour - two fast trains and two stopping trains.

By car, there are two routes - either via the C-31 (a local road which winds its way around the cliff faces) or the C-32 (a toll motorway). The C-32 is recommended for speed and safety, however it costs around €5, while the C-31 is free.

By Air, the closest international airport is Barcelona/El Prat de Llobregat(BCN) airport (Sitges is accessible by train, changing at El Prat de Llobregat). Reus/Tarragona(REU) airport is an alternative,for regional flights (Sitges is accessible by train changing at either Sant Vicenç de Calders or Vilanova i la Geltrú).Girona/Gerona(GRO) airport is over 125 km in Costa Brava.

Sitges FRENCH EDITION

Carles Marques

Sitges is light turned into white town, with the blue strip of the sea. It was founded by Iberians and Romans, and was the capital of Modernism. The Garraf massif protects it and almost makes it an island, half way between Cuba and Greece, but with a very singular personality. However, Sitges is a plural word, and that alone tells us everything. A small multiracial, multicultural and multi-everything town. A welcoming retreat of calm and civilisation, which knows how to turn to debauchery at Carnival time. The artistic and cultural trail, marked by great names, continues along its path with studios and art galleries. Sitges, moreover, is a city of congresses, quality hotels, sailing, open-air sports, popular and sophisticated gastronomy, cinema, with the film festival, and well-known personalities, who wander around unnoticed like any other citizen of Sitges.

Out Around Barcelona/Sitges (Out Around - Thomas Cook)

GO VISTA: Reiseführer Barcelona (Mit Faltkarte) (German Edition)

Karoline Gimpl

arcelona gilt als die heimliche Hauptstadt Spaniens, und mit Recht! Die Zwei-Millionen-Metropole, der man ihre Nähe zu Frankreich anmerkt, ist modern, selbstbewusst und weltoffen. Wenn man erfahren will, was »in« ist, dann muss man nach Barcelona. 1992 hat die Stadt international auf sich aufmerksam gemacht mit den bis dahin spektakulärsten Olympischen Spielen. Ein futuristischer weißer Telekommunikationsturm von Santiago Calatrava überragt den Olympiaberg Montjuïc.Große Architekten reichen sich in Barcelona die Hand: Richard Meier entwarf das Museum für Zeitgenössische Kunst und Jean Nouvel eine gigantische Zigarre mit bunt schillernden Markisen, den Hochhausturm Agbar. Auf der Modemesse Pasarela Gaudí setzen Spaniens flotte Scheren Akzente. Im Altstadtviertel Barri Gòtic beleben Designerläden die historischen Gebäude. Und immer wieder gehen Gotik und Jugendstil eine reizvolle Verbindung ein.Antoni Gaudí heißt der Architekt des sogenannten Modernisme, dessen Name und Lebenswerk, die Sühnekirche Sagrada Família, untrennbar mit Barcelona verbunden sind. Fröhliche Farbtupfer streute Joan Miró in die Stadt, der mit seinen kindlichen Bildern unverwechselbar wurde.
