Barcelona

A city with mountains and sea that you will experience from all its sides. Enjoy the beach while you’re sunbathing and feeling the breeze in your skin or feel the freedom when you see the views of Barcelona from the top of a mountain.
Walk through the streets of Barcelona, where you will experience the different cultures as it is a very multicultural and cosmopolitan city with a lot of history: you will sightsee from Roman buildings to a gorgeous and vibrant Gothic Quartier that hides lots of stories in its streets. Not to forget about Antoni Gaudí, our best-known architecht who created masterpieces like the Sagrada Família or the Park Güell.

Girona

Do you watch Game of Thrones? If yes, you will remember some sights of this beautiful city! Girona is a city in the northeast of Catalonia. The old town stands on the steep hill of the Capuchins to the east of the river Onyar. The colourfull houses next to the river, the ancient cathedral and its stairway, the old fortifications and the Jewish Heritage are the main sights.

Sitges

The mountains that surrounds this city and the airstreams from the sea are the responsible for keeping the sky clean of clouds for about 300 days in a year. Others mention the long and funny nights, awesome beaches, good communication with Barcelona, the calm you can breath there and, of course, the nice people. What is for sure is that Sitges has a different lifestyle, it is called the Catalan San Francisco as it is a very open minded and gay-friendly city.
