Tapas is a typical Spanish dish. It comes in several varieties. The Basque version are called ‘pinchos’. Pinchos are generally bite-sized portions served on slices of baguette.In Barcelona and Sitges you will find Pinchos restaurants as well. These restaurants are filled with these delicious snacks. When you’re fed up with all the wining and dining, or you’re just looking for some fast food after a day at the beach, we really can recommend this. In Sitges you will one at San Pablo and Nou it’s the first street just before the church from the beach up hill.
Sitges is known about the beaches (17 in total). On this link you will find more information about all the beaches in Sitges. When you come to the beach you can park at the boulevard, it’s the cheapest way, but unfortunately it’s most of the time pretty crowded (unless you arrive really early, which we never managed to do so). Another possibility is to park in one of the carparks, there is always place, the car stands save and out of the sun, but they’re much more expensive.
