An Alternative Guide to travelling in Spain and Portugal on a Small Budget
The Renfe Journey between Sitges and Barcelona in Pictures
Posted on by
Our journey began at the Sitges Renfe station. For the meager cost of 7.20 euros we secured return tickets to Barcelona.
The Mediterraenan Sea from the Renfe train as we left Stiges was just one of the many dramatic views the route has to offer.
Parc del Garraf and Castelldefels roll on by as we head towards Barcelona.
Sweep gives us his best cheesy grin for a photo opportunity on the train from Sitges to Barcelona. He's in this gallery for two reasons; firstly he's handsome and secondly dogs are allowed to travel on the Renfe services but should normally wear a muzzle.
Nearing the outskirts of Barcelona the landscape morphs from countryside to high rise buildings. This one has an escape UFO on the roof.
Closer to the centre of Barcelona the apartment blocks start to obscure our views of anything further.
The city of Barcelona closes in around us before we disappear into a tunnel.
We emerge from the tunnel to the sight of Estacio de Franca, Barcelona. It is a very well kept station in the heart of the city and is the first thing to greet most visitors travelling by rail.
