Castelldefels

Sun, sea, beach and a lot of silence

Barcelona lies on a plateau between the sea and a mountain range, which limits the urban area out to the country. This level rejuvenates towards the south west, at the end the small town of Castelldefels is located. The ridge occurs in the sea. The cliff reaches as far as Sitges.
In addition to a typical village, Castelldefels has an about 6km long sand beach, at which flatter building dominates.

The situation on the beach, close proximity to Barcelona and the rural atmosphere make Castelldefels a popular tourist destination. With the train you can be at the main station Sants of Barcelona in about 30 minutes without subject to change.
The beach is not as full as in Barcelona and the beach isn't separated to the city by a coastal road. As a result there are several hotels directly on the beach.

The city is towered over by a castle, you can also find a number of smaller churches and medieval towers as landmarks.
