DISCOVER SITGES

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog!!

Yesterday I had so much fun in Sitges! I went there to spend the Saturday and It was such a lovely day!

Every summer I spend my holidays in Sitges, it’s a beautiful coastal village and I’m in love with it!! I’ve had every year the time of my life there 🙂

So, today I’m gonna show you what I did in Sitges. My favourite corners and places to go and to eat. If you haven’t been there yet, I really recommend you to go. It’s near from Barcelona but it’s sooo different! There’s calm near the sea and there’s party in the Calle del Pecado. You can have the most delicious dinner next to the church and the best drinks in the most comfortable chillouts.

If you don’t have any plan for the weekend, now you know where you can go.

Ayer me lo pasé genial en Sitges! Fui a pasar el sábado y fue un dia muy bonito!

Cada verano paso mis vacaciones en Sitges, es un pueblo costero precioso y es que estoy enamorada de él!! He pasado muchos momentos buenísimos allí 🙂

Así que hoy, os voy a enseñar que hice en Sitges. Mis rincones favoritos, sitios para ir y para comer. Si no habeis estado allí todavía, os recomiendo mucho ir. Está cerca de Barcelona pero es taaaan diferente. Hay calma cerca del mar, hay fiesta en la Calle del Pecado. Puedes tomar la comida más deliciosa cerca de la iglesia y las mejores bebidas en los chillouts más cómodos.

Si no tienes ningún plan para el fin de semana, ahora ya sabes dónde puedes ir.
