As you may know, Barcelona is a lively city packed with people, restaurants, businesses and tourist destinations. However, if you need a break from the hustle and bustle and you’re into nature trails and the great outdoors, then there are various day trip locations nearby that are worth a visit!
Barcelona is ideally placed for weekend trips to nearby towns and villages around Catalonia. One that we highly recommend visiting is Cadaqués. A quaint and more or less unchanged fishermen’s village home to the late Salvador Dalí, with whitewash houses, stunning scenery and delicious food and drink. Only two and a half hours from the Catalan capital, you’d be mad not to visit Cadaqués during your stay in Barcelona.
Just over an hour and half from Barcelona on the fast-speed train, Zaragoza is the perfect destination for a day trip from the Catalan capital. Jump on board and whisk yourself away to a this city filled with Roman history, architecture, adventure and delicious food and drink…of course. Head to Zaragoza for a day trip from Barcelona.
