  • Montserrat

    One of the most unique mountains you will ever see is located only around 50 kilometres from Barcelona. The mountain of Montserrat is an astounding rocky range with multiple peaks, which are shaped as fingers (in fact, 'montserrat' means 'serrated mountain' in Catalan). It hosts a Benedictine abbey and a museum of Catalan art, as well as the famous Virgin of Montserrat, one of the few black Madonnas of Europe. You can arrive to Montserrat by taking a train from Barcelona and then a rack railway, but it is a beautiful hike to the top.

  • Costa Brava

    The region of Catalonia has many different landscapes to offer. You can find golden beaches in the city of Barcelona and its surroundings, as well as in the south, but if you go to Costa Brava, in the north, towards the city of Girona and its surroundings, you will find a whole different thing: Rocks, cliffs and stony shores, beautiful beaches made of rocks, reddish thick sands and fierce tides worth seeing. In fact, 'Costa Brava' means 'Wild Coast'! You will love the hard terrain and beautiful cliffs, as well as the rocky bays. It makes for a beautiful day trip!

  • Tarragona

    Barcelona is the most famous city of Catalonia - but it sure isn't the only one worth visiting! Around an hour away you will find Tarragona, the old Roman Capital of Tarraco. As such, you will find wonderful Roman ruins, which were declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. Those include the impressive Amphitheatre, Les Ferreres Aqueduct and many others. Tarragona is located in the Costa Daurada ('The Golden Coast'), which means that you will be able to enjoy yourself in some beautiful beaches as well.

  • Sitges

    If you want to go on a day trip during your stay in Barcelona but you don't want to go too far, we have the perfect option for you: Sitges, a beautiful seaside town where you will be able to lie on a beautiful golden beach. The town beaches are usually quite crowded, but you can hike for a little white to hidden and private bays. Don't forget to put the cherry on top with a walk through Sitges' sloped streets and its beautiful church by the sea. You will go back to Barcelona with a smile on your face!
