In fact, beyond the hustle and bustle of the streets of the Catalan capital, there are several pockets of tranquility without leaving the province itself. Inland and coastal places that present to the visitor all the attractions of the province of Barcelona.

A promenade marked out by level houses, built in the 19th century by Indians on their return from visiting the Americas and which show the strength of Sitges. But if Sitges stands out for something, it is for its variety of beaches where the quality of the water and sand shine.

In total there are more than fifteen beaches that include family areas and also gay and nudist areas. Beaches that go from those of Terramar to those of Benapres and La Ribera. A good option to stay is this hotel in Sitges, Barcelona.

Santa Coloma de Cervello: proletarian modernism

Located in the Llobregat region, very close to the city, Santa Coloma de Cervello has a reason to be on this list: its neighborhood. It is a nineteenth-century industrial colony promoted by Eugeni Guell and built by Antoni Gaudi.

Colonia Guell was built (unlike the industrial colonies of the time) with numerous facilities, both cultural and religious. Especially noteworthy is the church designed by Antoni Gaudi himself, unfinished but which lays the foundations of what would be the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Due to the rich heritage of the complex, in 1991 Colonia Guell was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest and the protection of the most relevant buildings was established, as well as the general characteristics of the building.
