Between Parc National del Garraf in the north and the town of Vilanova i la Geltru in the south lies the beach-side city of Sitges, just 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona. The flat, white beaches are laid with fine sand that touches the clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. There are 17 beaches in Sitges adjourned with palm trees and bordered with a walkway that stretches from the rocky valleys in the east to a massive golf course in the west. Sitges is widely known for its gay pride carnival from the end of February to the beginning of March and its world-renowned October fantasy film festival. The photogenic setting of hills, the sea and plastered-white town makes Sitges one of the most expensive European cities to inhabit as its economy is booming with tourism and culture. Its busy narrow winding streets are full of restaurants, bars, shops, historical sites, churches and prominent art culture. This spectacular shoreline town proves to be a must-see destination to explore in Catalonia.
