A short drive or train ride from Barcelona, Sitges is often called the St. Tropez of the Spanish Riviera—where lazy afternoons in this resort town are a must for many of us looking for relaxation. Lay back and enjoy sun filled beaches that will become your daily routine after a short walk through the small cobblestone streets and perfectly painted white houses. While in Sitges, don’t forget to try local restaurants, paellas and Fideuá (another version of paella), but with noodles and no rice. While the majority of tourists will be day-trippers from Barcelona and many other places from northern Europe, you can just sit and relax, read your book or paper in one of the several café’s facing the beach.

If you’re still not convinced that this could be the next place for you to spend your vacation, I think we could change your mind.

Here are my top 7 pictures that will inspire you to visit Sitges on your next trip.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
