16 Best Day Trips From Barcelona Spain
Barcelona is a fantastic urban destination, with so much to see and do. But if you limit yourself to staying within the city, you’re missing a lot of what Catalonia has to offer. Within a couple of hours of Barcelona city, there is a myriad of seaside villages, pretty hillside hamlets, stunning secret beaches, beautiful historical towns, cultural and natural attractions, and even giant theme parks!
The list is seemingly endless. So make sure to schedule in a few extra days to get acquainted with this special part of Spain, and enjoy the best day trips from Barcelona!
Barcelona Day Trips
When planning your day trips in Barcelona it’s best to think geographically and potentially batch some of these amazing destinations into a full day’s exploration.
We’ve plotted all of our day trip suggestions onto the map below to make this process a little easier for you. In order to get the most out of your holiday, we’d also suggest renting a car in Barcelona.
While it’s possible to visit many destinations near Barcelona with the aid of public transport, transit times and timetable restrictions could potentially inhibit your options. With a hire car, you can set your own agenda, and make the most of your side trips from Barcelona by visiting many places in a single day.
Perhaps plan a one-day excursion from Barcelona up North to take in the coastal towns or cultural wonders at Girona and Figueres. One day to visit Montserrat and La Colònia Güell. And one day down south to visit Tarragona, Sitges, or to take the family to PortAventura.
Whichever Barcelona day tours you choose, you’re bound to have a brilliant time. So let’s get exploring!
Ruins of Empuries
When we first stumbled on the Ruins of Empuries, it was like stepping back into Knossos in Crete. These much less famous Greek and Roman ruins are located near the pretty beachside village of L’Escala. The low-key entrance contradicts the size and scale of the treasures within.
Founded by the Greeks in the 6th century BC, the ancient town was later occupied by the Romans. It was abandoned in the 3rd century AD and nature took its course. Sand devoured the city and it was only uncovered centuries later, in 1908. Excavation work continues to this day.
It’s a moving experience, walking between the old walls and columns, reflecting on what life was like in ancient times. Take time to admire the Roman mosaic floors and sit in silence in the grand amphitheatre. The onsite Archeology Museum is a must-do while you’re there too. While you’re in the area, be sure to check out the Alt Emporda wine region which was named after Empuries.
How to get to the Ruins of Empuries from Barcelona:
The drive to the Ruins of Empuries takes a little over an hour and a half and passes by Girona. Taking the bus to the Ruins of Empuries can be done, but it requires changing buses in Figueres or Girona, and the whole journey will set you back over 3 hours.
Alternatively, a tour will get you there – but for a shorter length of time, as it also showcases other highlights of the region. Check the tour options here.
Montserrat mountain is as distinctive as it is imposing – rising up to 1,236 m at its highest peak. The mountain lives up to its name (Montserrat translates to “saw mountain” in Catalan) with its jagged rock formations creating the appearance of a giant serrated handsaw. The mountain has been shaped over time by wind and water, creating the unique formations you see today.
Montserrat is a popular place for hiking and there are trails for most levels of fitness. Take the funicular and explore the mountain at your leisure. A little more than halfway up the mountain rests the Santa Maria de Montserrat Abbey.
A sacred place, and home to the Virgin Mary of Montserrat (also known as the Black Madonna). Hoards of pilgrims descend on the monastery every year, but you don’t have to be religious to appreciate the beauty of the buildings.
A trip to Montserrat is an excellent addition to your Barcelona itinerary!
How to get to Montserrat from Barcelona:
The journey from Barcelona is fairly straight forward, so long as you plan your trip to Montserrat in advance. Trains to Montserrat from Barcelona leave from the Espanya rail station. Look for the Line R5 headed towards Manresa. You can buy train tickets at the station, and you also have the option to buy tickets here for the cable car up to the monastery also.
Alternatively, driving to Montserrat from Barcelona takes around an hour. You can either park at the bottom of the mountain and take the cable car or rack railway up the mountainside, or drive directly to the monastery. There is a large car park next to both the cable car and the rack railway stations.

Tossa de Mar
The stunning seaside town of Tossa de Mar is a must-do day trip from Barcelona. Stroll through the charming network of cobbled streets until you find the pièce de résistance, the vast pale sand beach known as Platja Gran.
It’s one of many beaches in the area, and where most visitors end up sunning themselves. The other beaches are a little harder to reach but worth the effort. And all the beaches are amazing for swimming and snorkelling. Platja Gran is framed on one side by La Vila Vella Castle – you can’t miss it!
The medieval walled town of Vila Vella is an enchanting place to discover by foot. Walk around the old town walls, and admire the breathtaking view from the top. If you get tired from the walk up, or if you’re travelling with kids, you can take the tourist train back down – and enjoy a short tour of the town while you’re at it!
How to get to Tossa de Mar from Barcelona:
If you’ve got a car, the route to Tossa de Mar is fairly straight-forward, just follow the coast! During peak times this road can get busy though, and you’ll save a bit of time if you take the longer but fast E-15 (tolls apply).
For those needing to take public transport, the train doesn’t go all the way into Tossa de Mar, so your best bet is the bus which takes around 2 hours ( as opposed to around 1 hour 20 to drive). Or even simpler, book a tour from Barcelona!
One of the most convenient day trips from Barcelona is the beachside town of Premia de Mar. This old seaside town manages to hold onto the charm of yesteryear, while seemingly embracing the grungy culture of today. A short train ride from Barcelona will deposit you right at the beach – a beautiful long stretch of white sand with safe areas for swimming.
When it’s time for lunch, just pop up to one of the beach bars or walk a little further to the marina where you’ll find amazing sushi at Offu Sushi Bar. At night the locals congregate in cafes and bars until late, children play in the squares and music floats in the air. It’s the authentic Catalan experience, that has apparently been overlooked by tourism.
How to get to Premià de Mar from Barcelona:
Getting to Premià de Mar from Barcelona is a piece of cake. You can drive there in under an hour, or take the train which takes a smidge more than half an hour! Trains depart frequently from Barcelona and deposit you right by the beach.
You’ve likely already seen photos of Girona, even if you don’t realise it. The colourful houses that line each side of the Onyar River adorn postcards and photo albums in every corner of the world. The charm of Girona extends beyond this idyllic scene though.
The old town centre is rustic and enchanting, with new discoveries at every turn. Be sure to wander the Jewish Quarter, which has been lovingly preserved. Walk the medieval city walls for a fresh perspective, and pay a visit to the Arab baths.
Consider visiting the city in May when the annual flower festival (Temps de Flors) takes place. The week-long festival has been running since 1954 and continues to get bigger and better every year. It’s a unique and fun way to get to know the city’s attractions as you walk from one installation to another, stopping to take in the incredible displays of floral art.
How to get to Girona from Barcelona:
Getting from Barcelona to Girona is a fairly easy exercise and you have plenty of options also! Driving is the most flexible option. Just take the A7 from Barcelona to Girona. It’ll take you about an hour and 20 minutes to reach Girona by car.
Trains run frequently from Barcelona to Girona and it’s a much quicker way to transfer between cities than driving. The train will drop you in Girona in around 40 mins. Buses also do the route to Girona, but are less frequent than trains and take longer.
A fascinating place to visit, Colònia Güell is just a quick drive from Barcelona, making it an excellent choice for a short day trip (if you were pushed for time you could even combine it with a trip to Montserrat).
The purpose-built industrial village was founded in 1980 by Eusebi Güell who moved his textile mill to the area. He commissioned Antoni Gaudí to build the colony’s church, but Gaudí only got as far as completing the crypt before the plan became undone.
While Gaudí didn’t get to realise his project, it still serves as a working church and it stands as a remarkable insight into the artist’s plan for la Sagrada Família. The crypt became a UNESCO site in 2005. Nearby, you can see the abandoned factory workers’ houses and castle ruins.
How to get to Colònia Güell from Barcelona:
Driving to Colònia Güell and Gaudí’s Crypt takes around half an hour from Barcelona city centre. Taking the train takes roughly the same amount of time. Take train lines S33, S8 and S4 and get off at Colonia Güell station.
With its proximity to Barcelona and prime seaside position, you’d be forgiven for thinking Sitges was just like any other beachside town running the length of Spain’s northwestern coast. But you’d be wrong. The town’s manicured feel and cosmopolitan vibe aren’t manufactured, they’re the result of Sitges being the top spot for rich Barcelonians’ holiday homes for centuries.
It’s no hidden gem though, during the summer months the population quadruples. And in Autumn, horror and fantasy film lovers flock to Sitges for the International Film Festival. Alongside the traditional charm, you’ll find free-spirited values. There’s an underlying bohemian vibe, and it’s a welcoming haven for the gay population – with several events held throughout the year.
How to get to Sitges from Barcelona:
It takes just under an hour to drive to Sitges from Barcelona. Take the C-32 southbound. Or ditch the car in favour of the train which will get you there in around half the time! Trains run frequently from Barcelona to Sitges – look out for the R2S line. Buses also run between Barcelona and Sitges and take around 45 mins to reach their destination.
Check the MonBus website for timetables.
Most famous for its Roman remains, Tarragona is a very popular day trip from Barcelona. Founded in 218BC, Tarragona showcases artefacts from throughout its turbulent history. From the waterfront amphitheatre to the Monumento a los Castellers, Tarragona packs a hefty dose of culture.
There are plenty of things to do and see in Tarragona. Explore the old city with its labyrinth of alleyways and discover the city’s own version of La Rambla – a more authentic version of its northern counterpart. The National Archaeological Museum of Tarragona will take you on a journey through time, and when you’re done exploring you can wander through the Parc de l’amphithéatre to the golden sandy shore beyond.
How to get to Tarragona from Barcelona:
To visit Tarragona as a day trip, taking the train is your best bet. Trains run frequently, and the high-speed service will deliver you city to city in only half an hour! Driving, on the other hand, will take you almost three times as long – without the potential traffic holdups! You can also jump on a bus, but I’m not sure why you’d pick this option when it takes around 1.5 hours each way.
Top Tours of Tarragona:
When visiting Begur you may feel as if something is different, there is a unique flavour to this off-the-beaten-track town. I didn’t find out until after our second visit that Begur has ties to Cuba, and many of the colonial houses here were built by Begurencs who had returned from the Caribbean with spare change in their pockets.
It’s a lovely place to discover at leisure, as you entertain fantasies of buying your own holiday house. At the top of the village, you will find the crumbling Begur castle. The Castle dates back to the 11th century, but now only the foundations remain. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful place for a walk and you’ll be rewarded with some of the best views in the region.
Nearby Begur, you’ll also find plenty of the region’s finest beaches, including all but one (Cala Fonda) of my favourite beaches listed below.
How to get to Begur from Barcelona:
To drive to Begur from Barcelona, take the A7 towards Girona, then merge onto the C35 towards Begur. Driving takes approximately an hour and a half, more if there’s traffic. Alternatively, buses cost around €20 and take 2 and a half hours to reach Begur.
This one is for anyone with kids or anyone who loves behaving like one! PortAventura is actually made up of three different theme parks, earning it the title of the largest theme park in Spain. There’s PortAventura Park with its thrilling rides, entertaining shows and even world’s within a world. You can visit Polynesia, China and Mexico without stepping foot outside of the park!
Then there’s the aquatic park – perfect for cooling off in summer or indulging your love of water slides. It even has its own beach, complete with lapping waves. Ferrari Land is the latest addition and adds an Italian thrill to the park, complete with a replica Colosseum! Ferrari Land is for lovers of speed and is home to Europe’s highest and fastest rollercoaster.
How to get to PortAventura Park from Barcelona:
Drive, bus, train – all roads lead to PortAventura. It’s an easy hour and a half drive from Barcelona, or take a leisurely ride on the train for roughly the same length of time. See the train information here. The bus takes slightly longer, at around 1 hour 45 mins. See the bus timetable here.

A town of museums, Figueres has a lot to offer the visitor who wants to explore Catalonia beyond the beaches.
The most famous attraction in Figueres is the Dalí Theatre and Museum. A museum dedicated to, and created by, Salvador Dalí in the town where he was born. The Dalí Theatre and Museum is a truly unique space, with the works on display carefully curated by the artist himself. Dalí himself was even buried in the museum in 1989, his body lays in a crypt below the stage floor.
Other museums include the kids favourite Museu del Joguet de Catalunya (toy museum), the Museu de la Tecnica de l’Emporda (technology museum) and the Emporda Museum (cultural museum). The town’s 18th-century fortress, Castell de Sant Ferran is also worth a spot on your itinerary.
How to get to Figueres from Barcelona:
Once again, taking the train or driving are your two best bets for visiting Figueres as a day trip from Barcelona. Both take about the same length of time, but driving could end up costing you more when you factor in tolls and petrol costs.
Best Beach Day Trips from Barcelona
Aiguablava is a picture-perfect beach located near Begur on the Costa Brava. The turquoise water is shallow and calm, making it a great beach for younger swimmers.
You can even watch older kids splash around on the shore while enjoying a cool drink at one of the beach bars. It’s a popular spot in summer for anyone wanting a cool dip in the sea, or to go kayaking and paddleboarding.
The beach at Tamariu is one of my favourite on the Costa Brava. Another family-friendly beach, it’s popular, but not yet overridden by tourism. It used to be a fishing village, and colourful dinghies can still be found resting in the sand. It’s large enough not to be crowded, and because it’s not reliant on tourism, you can still dine the beachside cafe’s in the heart of winter.
Platja Fonda is one of those beaches the locals would rather you didn’t know about. Tucked between rocky cliffs, it’s the perfect place to find a little tranquillity during the busiest months.
The sand is darker and grittier than other beaches nearby, but with that comes the advantage of not getting it stuck to everything! The darker shade of sand also gives the water a unique teal colour, making it even more inviting. This beach is not ideal for families, as you must walk down around 100 steps to access it.
Sa Tuna is a hidden oasis near Begur. It still has the lovely, authentic village feeling that is missing from some other beach resorts on this stretch of coast. The steep hillside that surrounds it doesn’t allow for overdevelopment.
It’s a lovely place to visit in any season. In summer, it has a more lived-in feeling, but come winter you can wander the charming laneways entirely undisturbed. The beach is small and picturesque, and you can walk the coastal pathway, past the candy-coloured houses, to nearby Cala de Aiguafreda.
Known as Waikiki beach to the locals, Cala Fonda is a stunning white sand oasis among the lush green bush and burnt orange cliffs that surround it. It’s located near Tarragona and is a little tricky to get to, but that makes the reward all the more enjoyable! And it’s this remoteness that means it can be a lot quieter than some other beaches along the Costa Brava.
There are no facilities at Cala Fonda, which adds to its charm, but also means you need to come prepared. Bring water & food, sunscreen & towels, and a good book – then you’re set for the day! Relax into the serene scenery and experience the true magic of the Meditteranean.
Wow, so there you have it! When I started writing this post it was going to be the ten best day trips from Barcelona but that number quickly grew as I realised how many great places we’ve visited in close proximity to the city.
Catalonia is so rich in natural beauty, colourful culture and fascinating heritage, it’d be a shame to only see a small part of it. I hope you find this guide helpful in planning your next Barcelona holiday!

1. Savor divinely beautiful views in Montserrat
Travel time: 1 hour, 20 minutes
The mountain of Montserrat is home to Catalonia’s holiest site, the monastery of the same name. The views are spectacular – take walking shoes – and season permitting, you might be able to catch a choir performance inside the basilica. Afterward, ride the funicular or take a walk down to the Santa Cova, the spot where La Moreneta – a holy effigy of the virgin – was found, or up to the Sant Jeroni peak for a splendid view of the valley below.
How to get to Montserrat from Barcelona: The R5 line trains operated by FGC run half-hourly to hourly to and from Barcelona’s Plaça d’Espanya station. Next, get the AERI cable car to the monastery from the Montserrat Aeri stop. Alternatively, take the R5 to the next stop (Monistrol de Montserrat), from where cremallera trains run up to the monastery every 20 to 40 minutes.

2. Escape the city clamor in Collserola
Travel time: 15 minutes
Barcelonins seek out the vast Parc de Collserola up in the hills for an escape from city life. Walking and cycling trails run throughout the park, which is dotted with farmhouse-style restaurants. Pick up a map of the various routes from the info center at Carretera de l’Església 92, close to the Baixador de Vallvidrera FGC train station. From here, those with a bit of energy can walk across the hills to Sant Cugat and take the train back to Barcelona from there.
How to get to Collserola from Barcelona: Get the FGC suburban train from Plaça de Catalunya, Carrer de Provença or Gràcia to Baixador de Vallvidrera.

3. Walk through a rainbow in Girona
Travel time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Girona’s old town is a tight huddle of ancient arcaded houses, grand churches and sloped cobbled streets, with the grand cathedral looming over it. Until the virtual expulsion of the Jews in 1492, Girona was home to a huge Jewish community, and the Museu d’Història dels Jueus tells their story.
For a different slice of history, visit the 12th-century Banys Àrabs (“Arab Baths”), which was used as a filming location in Game of Thrones, and the pretty Romanesque Monestir de Sant Pere de Galligants. Stroll along the Onyar River to look at the colorfully painted houses that flank it or to reach the newer part of town, where you’ll find some excellent tapas bars. If your pockets are deep enough, Girona also has one of the world’s best restaurants, El Celler de Can Roca.
How to get to Girona from Barcelona: Take the train from Barcelona, which runs about every 30 minutes.

4. Get surreal in Figueres
Travel time: 2 hours
Figueres has some handsome Modernista architecture, a sprawling 18th-century castle (Castell de Sant Ferran) and a delightful little toy museum, the Museu del Joguet, but it is best known for the Teatre-Museu Dalí.
A former theater, it was converted by Dalí himself into a palace of surrealism, protected by tall red walls that bristle with giant eggs, Oscar-like statues and plaster croissants. Inside you’ll find paintings, a collection of jewelry designed by Dalí and some entertaining trompe l’oeil installations. A Teatre-Museu Dalí ticket will get you free entry to the Museu de l’Empordà, a fantastic art and archaeology museum that’s considered one of the best in the region.
How to get to Figueres from Barcelona: Figueres train station, 800m (0.5 miles) southeast of the center, has half-hourly trains to and from Barcelona.

5. Sunbathe and party in Sitges
Travel time: 40 minutes
The pretty, whitewashed town of Sitges is perfect for seafront promenading and sun-worshiping, so in warmer weather, you’ll find the most central beaches quite crowded. Luckily, there are quite a few to choose from, so pick your spot for a morning of sunbathing (or skinny dipping off the nudist beach) before choosing a seafood restaurant nearby.
It’s not all about the sea in Sitges. If you have an interest in contemporary art and in the Modernisme movement, the classy old center’s array of elegant buildings – many housing museums – is well worth some of your time. The town also has great nightlife and a vibrant LGBTIQ+ scene. One of Spain’s best Carnaval celebrations is held here (dates change annually), and October brings the Sitges International Film Festival to town.
How to get to Sitges from Barcelona: From 5am to 10pm, regular trains run from Barcelona Passeig de Gràcia and Sants. Monbus runs from Barcelona every 15 to 50 minutes.
6. Relax in friendly and welcoming Vilanova i la Geltrú
Travel time: 45 minutes
Just down the coast beyond Sitges (there is a lovely, hour-long walk along the cliffs you can do to reach it), Vilanova i la Geltrú is a larger, more down-home version that has long dedicated its efforts more to fishing and industry than the leisure business, and has a pleasantly unpretentious air.
If you want to spend the day on the beach, Vilanova i la Geltrú is an excellent place to do it. There are some decent, wide beaches (head right to the south for a lovely little cove) and an interesting railway museum, the Museu del Ferrocarril.
How to get to Vilanova i la Geltrú from Barcelona: From 5am to 10pm, regular trains run from Barcelona.

7. Revel in Roman ruins in Tarragona
Travel time: 1 hour
Of a similar size and scale to Girona, Tarragona is known for its Roman remains. Since the Museu d’Història de Tarragona – which comprises the main Roman sites – tends to be busiest from mid-morning onward, it’s best to start with its Amfiteatre Romà and the Fòrum Provincial or the excellent Museu Nacional Arqueològic de Tarragona, which gives a useful overview of the city’s impressive Roman past.
Afterward, head for the grand cathedral, followed by lunch in one of the many restaurants thereabouts or in the fishing neighborhood of El Serrallo, where you’ll find many fine seafood restaurants.
How to get to Tarragona from Barcelona: The train station is a 10-minute walk south of the old town near the beach, with services to and from Barcelona every 10 to 30 minutes.
8. Step back in time in medieval Montblanc
Travel time: 2 hours
Montblanc is a good-sized medieval walled town with a decent selection of places to eat and sleep. It’s worth a visit on its own merits; however, ideally, you should go with a car to fully explore the Cistercian Route, a triad of stunning monasteries within easy reach of one another, at Poblet, Vallbona de les Monges and Santes Creues. You’ll need to set off early if you are hoping to see all three.
How to get to Montblanc from Barcelona: Five trains a day run from Barcelona Passeig de Gràcia and Sants; the first is around 7am.
9. Find a buried treasure in Colònia Güell
Travel time: 40 minutes
Apart from La Sagrada Família, Gaudí’s last big project was the creation of a utopian textile workers’ complex for his magnate patron Eusebi Güell outside Barcelona at Santa Coloma de Cervelló. Gaudí’s main role was to erect the colony’s church, Colònia Güell, although he only managed to finish the crypt, which is open to visitors. Its mostly brick-clad columns that support the ribbed vaults in the ceiling are inclined at all angles in much the same way that trees in a forest lean and are key to understanding the physics behind his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família.
How to get to Colònia Güell from Barcelona: Take FGC lines S4, S8 or S33 to Colònia Güell.
Vic is a great medieval town to explore on a day trip from Barcelona © BearFotos / Shutterstock
10. Shop the local markets in Vic
Travel time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Vic, with its attractive historic center and some fine restaurants, dominates the flatlands of La Plana de Vic to the south of the Pyrenees and is an easy train ride from Barcelona. Plaça Major, the largest of Catalunya’s central squares, is lined with medieval, Baroque and Modernista mansions. It is still the scene of regular markets, hence its other name, Plaça del Mercadal.
How to get to Vic from Barcelona: Regular rodalies trains (line R3) run to and from Barcelona.

An excursion from Barcelona to Andorra is an opportunity to visit not only another country, but also another world. The parliamentary principality of Andorra, lost in the Pyrenees,
somewhere on the border between France and Spain – a complete misunderstanding, at first glance. Well, judge for yourself: you drive through the whole country in half an hour, there is no airport (there is not enough place where
could be placed), the railway, for the same reasons, is also absent. For an entire country, there are exactly 60 taxis and the same number of policemen; the prison is a former hotel, and even the football field of Andorra
– the smallest in the world. How, tell me, can you live like that!? It turns out that you can – and even clover! .. (more about excursions to Andorra)

walled city…. (more about excursions to Carcassonne)

An excursion to the medieval Vic will give us the opportunity to see the “real” Catalonia, hidden behind the folds of the mountains and living away from the noise of big, glamorous and eternally
hurrying cities. When I say “far away”, I do not mean distance, but a way of life. Vic, located just an hour from Barcelona, is a truly “real” Catalan city that,
it just so happened, overlooked by the general tourist community arriving in Catalonia from abroad. And the guides for the most part also somehow do not favor him – and, in my opinion, completely in vain. This is one of my favorite “regional centers” of the Catalan hinterland, and in Vic
Indeed, there is everything that is necessary for any self-respecting ancient city. (more info) .
