Sitges Tourism

Sitges is a beautiful city that is on the Costa Dorada , in Catalonia, and that has become one of the favorite tourist destinations in our country, especially thanks to the International Film Festival of Catalonia (one of the most important in Europe), to its spectacular beaches since it is a reference tourist destination for the gay scene, although there are tourists of all kinds, sex and nationality. The closest airport is Barcelona, ​​and you can get there in about 20 minutes by train.

It is clear that what draws the most attention in Sitges are its beaches, but it also has many other spectacular places. One of the things that I liked the most was their houses, painted white and with a very marked Andalusian or Lanzarote style . A city with a lot of charm that will welcome you as if you were one more and that will have you wandering around without stopping and enjoying each street and each landscape. Its carnivals are also very important, not yet like those of Cádiz or the Canary Islands but they do have more public and greater recognition every year.

As for monuments and other places that you can see in Sitges, there is the Church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla, which houses two Gothic tombs from 1317 and 1322. You also have the Can Llopis Romantic Museum , a beautiful place where you can see what life was like for a Catalan family during the romantic years as it is represented there. Another very interesting place is the House-Workshop of Santiago Rusiñol , a very important writer and artist in the area.

The last building that I want to recommend is the Sitges Town Hall , a spectacular place located where in medieval times there was a castle. For the end I leave what is probably the most beautiful thing about Sitges: its beaches. 17 spectacular beaches that run along the coast and that form a unique landscape in which to relax in the sun and escape the stress of your day to day. Just to tell you that during the summer there are numerous parties and activities, so check the events before you go to see if you can enjoy any of them.
