Sitges!

This weekend was absolutely lovely, spent in different villages and places around Barcelona. One of them being this cute little lively sea side town of Sitges. It’s a gem, just about 45 minutes away from Barcelona by train, definitely worth a visit if you’re around.

Sitges has a population of about 27000, and is very international. According to Wikipedia, a 35% of the population are people from the Netherlands, the UK, France and Scandinavia. Apart from foreigners, Sitges offers 17 sandy beaches, great night life and beautiful architecture!

The carnaval and film festival has given the town an international reputation, and Sitges is also said to be one of the most gay friendly places in the world?!
There seems to be a lot going on here, and I was lucky to bump into an event when I was there this weekend. I love bumping into cultural events I had no idea about! What better way to learn about culture and traditions than this way?

I’ll tell more about the event in another post, but first a little presentation of the town, in pictures:
