The best day trips in Barcelona

Who wants to leave Barcelona, ​​right? One of the most beautiful cities in the world is a place where everyone who calls himself a traveler wants to visit at least once in his life. And if you’ve seen photos of this Catalan gem, you know why.

But if you’ve been here for a long time and think you’ve seen it all, we have a few suggestions for discovering this region outside the hustle and bustle of the big city. See where you can go from Barcelona and what to do while visiting beautiful Spain!

1) Sitges

Sitges is a popular holiday destination for both locals and Barcelona travelers. This bohemian city is full of cafes, bars and restaurants dotted along the narrow, winding streets of the city, as well as on the beautiful waterfront along the Mediterranean Sea. If you want to avoid the crowds on city beaches, try to find small beaches called calas, which are ideal for relaxing and recharging.

How to get to Stiges:

  • Train: There are 3 stations in Barcelona from which you can get to Sitges: Estacio de França, Passeig de Gracia and Estacio Sants, the final destination of the train is Vilanova i la Geltru or St Vincenç de Calders. The cost of a one-way ticket is €4.10. Trains run on this route from 06:47 to 19:37, see timetable.
  • Bus: Buses to Sitges from Barcelona leave all day from Plaza España and Ronda Universitat (Monbus company). There are also night buses N30, N31 and N32. The cost of a one-way ticket is €4.00. See the bus schedule.
2) Costa Brava

Lloret de Mar is one of the most popular resorts on the Costa Brava, ideal for groups of friends or families. There are many Blue Flag beaches that attract more and more visitors every year.

Families will love Lloret for its great facilities and attractions: a water park, a huge adventure playground and lots of good ideas for sightseeing and activities nearby. In addition, this place is known for its fantastic nightlife.

How to get to the Costa Brava:

  • Train: There are no direct trains from Barcelona airport to Lloret de Mar. Therefore, to go to the north of Catalonia, you need to take a train to the center of Barcelona.
  • Bus: Sarfa operates buses from Barcelona Airport T1 and T2 from 7:50 to 21:15, the trip to Lloret takes almost 2 hours. The same bus stops at the Estació del Nord station in Barcelona. The bus runs approximately every hour. Ticket prices start from €9.60 each way and the trip from Barcelona Estació del Nord takes 1 hour.
3) Girona

Many people know it only as a cheap airport on the way to Barcelona, ​​but you should spend some time in this city between the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava. The Jewish quarter of the city is one of the oldest and best preserved in Europe.

It’s very nice to walk through the streets and find small passages and gardens. Also, a special experience for all Game of Thrones fans as many of the scenes were filmed right in Girona.

How to get to Girona:

  • Train: The new AVE high-speed train from Barcelona to Girona will take you just 37 minutes. There are many flights per day and the journey usually takes between 40 and 70 minutes. The cost of one ticket is from 8.20 to 16.20 euros.
  • Bus: Sagalés is a bus company that operates from Barcelona to Girona. There are several departures per day. A trip of 1.30 hours costs EUR 15.00 each way.
4) Collserola Park

Collserola Park is actually the closest excursion from Barcelona, ​​so some people don’t consider it a day trip, but it definitely has enough potential to keep you busy for the day. This is one of the largest green areas in the region (8,000 ha) and a place where locals can relax, walk, bike, stargaze at the Fabra astronomical observatory and enjoy the stunning panorama. In 2010, Collserola became the official natural park of Spain and was renamed “Parc Natural de la Serra Collserola”.

How to get to Collserola Park:

  • Train: The only way to get to the park (other than on foot) is to take the FGC train to the Baixador de Vallvidrera stop. The ticket price is 2.15 euros.
5) Montserrat

On the mountain of Montserrat is the holiest place in Catalonia, the monastery of the same name. Get ready for walks and impressive views. If you’re lucky, you might also get to see a performance in the Horab Basilica.

After that, you can take the funicular or walk down to Santa Cova, the place where La Morneta, the sacred image of the Virgin, was found, or, if you still have the strength, climb to the top of Sant Jeroni, from where you have a magnificent view of the valley.

How to get to Montserrat:

  • Train: Get to Espanya station, find the R5 line towards Manresa and get off at Aeri to take the cable car, or at Cremallera at the foot of Montserrat (cog railway). It takes 23 minutes to climb the mountain to Montserrat Monastery. The train departs from Espanya station once per hour from 08:36 to 16:36. The one-way ticket costs €11.65 (round-trip €21.10).
6) Tarragona

Heading south you will come across Tarragona, a place that was the most important Spanish port back in Roman times. You will have the opportunity to see the well-preserved Colosseum and the beautiful Catalan city with beautiful beaches.

Another highlight of the city is the Tarraco Viva festival, which gives you the opportunity to experience what Roman life really was. In 2000, the city of Tarragona was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as its archaeological remains date back to Roman times.

How to get to Tarragona:

  • Train: Take the Avant train from Estacio de Sants and you will be in Tarragona in just 36 minutes. It costs 14.10 euros each way. You can also take the Regional Express, which departs from Estació de França, Passig de Gràcia and Sants, takes 1 hour 20 minutes and costs €5. 50 each way.
7) Ebrebre Delta

This is the perfect excursion for those who love nature. Delta de l’Ebre is a natural park just 3 hours from Barcelona, ​​home to many different species of birds (over 250!). There are also few beaches and many rice fields.

The park is an ideal place for cycling, but you can also spend a day on the beach, enjoy sports such as kite surfing (very popular here) or enjoy the local cuisine.

How to reach Delta de l’Ebrebre:

  • Train: By train (Renfe) you can reach most of the major cities of Delta de l’Ebre and the surrounding region, including L’Ampolla, L’Ametlla de Mar , Carmarles and L’Aldea. Trains depart regularly from Barcelona’s main stations.

Located between Cambrils and La Pineda, Salou on the Costa Dorada is very close to the aforementioned Tarragona, so you can combine the two in one holiday. This place is interesting for everyone who wants to relax on fantastic beaches and enjoy a Spanish fiesta. Don’t forget that as you walk down the road you will see Port Aventura, a mega theme park that also has a water park.

How to get to Salou:

  • Train: The RENFE railway company operates a connection between Barcelona Sants station and Salou. Trains run from 06:03 to 21:03. The trip takes 1 hour 30 minutes. See timetable. The ticket price is from 8.80 € to 19.90 €.
9) Vineyards of Catalonia

Did you know that Catalonia is one of the best wine producers in the world? In addition to white and red, you can also try cava – sparkling wine, a big competitor to champagne from France. If you are a wine lover, choose between Penedes, Priorat and Alella and come by train or bus because it’s hard to stop drinking these delicious and economical wines after just one glass.

How to get to the vineyards of Catalonia:

  • Train: All three regions are easily accessible from Barcelona train stations.
  • Bus: All three regions are easily accessible from the Barcelona bus station.
10) Besalú

Visit a typical Catalan medieval village and one of the most beautiful places in Spain. Once there, enjoy the breathtaking view of the delightful old bridge and the Fluvià river.

Take a pleasant stroll through the cobbled streets and visit the main monuments of the village, the College of Santa Maria and the Ecclesiastical Hospital of Sant Julia. Afterwards, sit by the riverside to enjoy the tranquility and atmosphere.

How to get to Besalu: 0

  • Bus: The Teisa Bus runs from Barcelona to Besalu. He will take you there in 2 hours. Check the timetables at the Barcelona bus stations.

Marina P.

Excursion to Montserrat in a mini-group

Me and two other tourists were very lucky – there were too many applications for the tour, and the organizers had to add another car, a Citroen. Very comfortable, and the driver – Lyuba (I apologize if I mixed up the name) – was also our guide. We got a private tour for 55 euros, and they sell online for at least 250 euros. We arrived very quickly, with stops to take spectacular pictures. Lyuba took into account all our wishes, adjusted very flexibly.

Field trip to Montserrat in a mini-group

I liked the tour. Guide Lana very interestingly and emotionally told Montserrat, the emergence of the monastery, the traditions of the Benedictines. Impressions are a bit blurred by the fact that the bus was too loud microphone. Unfortunately, Lana did not pay attention to requests to turn the volume down a little. Montserrat is a chamber place, and despite the huge number of tourists, you want a little peace and tranquility!

Photos from excursions

If you have enough strength and desire, then arriving to rest in Barcelona you can not be limited to excursions around the city and its environs. From here you can go both on boat trips to the islands belonging to Spain, and on bus tours around the country. Modern buses are equipped with air conditioning, so that the journey will be quite comfortable, despite the heat prevailing on the street. You can go on both one-day and multi-day tours. It is difficult for the inhabitants of Russia, especially Siberia, to get used to how compactly everything is located in Europe. Combined with excellent roads, this means that traveling to a nearby town often takes only 1-2 hours. We spend so much to get from home to work. Group tours in Spain include a hodgepodge of the most popular tourist sites. Museums alternate with restaurants, farms with Catholic churches. Going on an individual tour, or as part of a small group, you can choose a more thematic option.
