Sitges has become one of Europe’s leading tourist destinations, well known all over the world thanks to its unique, universal attractions: its location between the sea, El Garraf park and Barcelona; a microclimate with more than 300 days of sunshine a year; 19 fine sandy beaches; a strong relationship with the cultural world; its lively nightlife; delicious food; a wide variety of shopping options; three marinas and a golf course facing the sea; the survival of its traditions, and the highest quality and excellence in all its services.

On top of that, it has a calendar full of events throughout the year, starting with its Carnival and continuing with the Barcelona-Sitges International Vintage Car Rally, the Patchwork Festival, Sant Jordi, Corpus Christi, the Jardins de Terramar Festival, its main annual festival full of folk dancing and fireworks, and the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia. All of these make it a wonderful destination to visit all year round.

During your stay in Sitges we recommend you not to miss:

  • Our culture: Sitges is a leading international reference for Catalan Art Nouveau. A stroll through the cobbled streets of its old town stimulates your senses and emotions, with iconic historic buildings containing museums with unique pieces by Santiago Rusiñol and Ramon Casas, as well as El Greco and Picasso, among others. One of the essential and unforgettable experiences in Sitges is to discover the legacy of the Modernista movement and its “total art”, which have left a cultural and social mark on the town that still endures today.

  • A shopping day: With more than 500 different establishments, our shops always make a stroll around Sitges more interesting, fun and surprising. Small and family-run, with very few franchises, and open and modern, with original products and flexible opening hours, our shops are the town’s best ambassadors. Crafts and decoration, clothes and accessories, an ice cream, a makeover or a spa session – whatever you need and whenever you need it. Because in Sitges not only do the shops close late, many of them are open on Sundays and public holidays. Do you need any more arguments to come shopping here? More information:
  • Our beaches and ports: Urban and family beaches, easily accessible by public transport. Or small coves with turquoise water in the Garraf park. Beaches with an LGTBI atmosphere. Beaches to do sport or to relax and forget about everything. Coves with views, coves where you don’t need a swimming costume and coves where you can bring your pets. Beaches to get a feel for the atmosphere of the city and beaches where you can have a drink, with live concerts and DJs. All you need to do is choose. Or discover something new. More information:
  • Our cuisine: One of the best things about travelling is having clear memories of your trips. And this is where food usually plays an important role. In Sitges, your palate will be able to discover unique dishes and wines typical of our town, with a flavour that lingers in the mouth and in the memory. Don’t miss our Sitges-style rice, our malvasia wine or our xató. More information:
