About the Town
This former fishing village is a charming old town and is dotted with impressive renaissance and art nouveau buildings and home to some of the regions fanciest restaurants. The area was actually Picasso’s old stomping ground and its no wonder that the riches of the area have flocked to its pretty surroundings to admire the sweeping beaches and rolling green hills that enclose the town. Sitges is actually considered the ‘St. Tropez of Spain” which tells you all you need to know.
Things to Do
When you’re not lounging on the beach or enjoying fresh seafood at a beach-side restaurant, then you should be exploring the town’s museums. Marciel Museum offers an insight into nautical art, Cau Ferrat Museum unearths iconic Spanish art while the Edifici Miramar, though not quite a museum, is considered a neoclassical landmark that you simply can’t miss. If you’re in town at the end of August, you might be lucky enough to catch the Fiesta Major, an annual festival featuring fireworks, food and wine tasting!
