What can I see on a day trip from Barcelona?
One of the most common day trips from Barcelona is to Sitges. With the best beach in the area, Sitges is very popular, especially in high season. This Barcelona trip is often combined with Tarragona, the old Roman capital of the Iberian Peninsula. The two together make a great contrast and one of the best of all day trips from Barcelona. Also on the Costa Dorado, you'll find many small traditional looking towns to explore.
Montjuic is also a popular amongst day trips from Barcelona. This mountain, overlooks Barcelona and was host to the 1992 Olympics. Visitors can view the stadium as well as impressive examples of Spanish architecture.
A little further away is Montserrat, known as crazy mountain due to its weird naturally formed shapes. At the summit is the spectacular cathedral and if you're lucky, you may have the chance to hear the beautiful sounds of the children's choir in Europe. Near the area is wine making region of Catalunya. Visit the winery here to round off a satisfying day trip.
If you fancy traveling a little farther on your Barcelona vacation, don't miss the The Pyrenees. It would be impractical to suggest skiing on a day trip, but it's worth taking a look at the area and even watching others brave the slopes. It might just inspire you to return, complete with skis, on a future trip.
