A former fishing village, its geographical situation -35 km (22 miles) from Barcelona and 20 km (12.5 miles) from Barcelona airport-, and its natural beauty make Sitges a wonderful spot to enjoy a vacation by the sea.
Cosy, cosmopolitan and with an open-minded population, Sitges is an idyllic town for visitors.
Sitges offers its charm to tourists who want to calmly enjoy its sandy beaches along 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) of a coastline protected by the Garraf massif, and too to tourists who are nightlife enthusiasts. In addition, there are many restaurants, which contribute with gastronomic specialities.
Its cultural heritage is notable for its wealth of modernist buildings, residential mansions built by the “indianos” in the early twentieth and the museums with valuable collections of art.
The old town built around the parish church -”La Punta”- overlooks the sea from its privileged position and the 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) seafront promenade. It retains the primal nature which gave deserved fame from the end of 19th-century, when writers and painters discovered the light of Sitges and the beauty of its unique landscape.
The abundance of bars with terraces, clubs and leisure and sports centers, including horse riding and golf course, make Sitges an ideal destination for holiday, in winter for its mild climate and in summer, for its beaches.
Throughout the year, but especially in summer, many concerts and music, film and theater festivals take place.
Do not forget the microclimate of Sitges, with over 300 sunny days a year; it is extremely important for holidays.
