Visit Sitges in La Costa Dorada

 

Sitges - Costa Dorada

 

Sitges - Costa Dorada

Sitges is one most important tourist resorts on the Catalan Coast. It has managed to preserve its scenic ambience and its artistic and cultural heritage. This is why Sitges enjoys a year-round tourist trade that makes more than one believe that Sitges is a non-stop party. To a certain extent this is true, since the town has a calendar dense with cultural activities and festivals.
Its Carnival has achieved world renown (visit our Gay guide of Sitges), its old-car rallies have drawn throngs, as have the floral street carpeting during Corpus Christi, the International Festival of Fantastic and Horror Cinema, the Theatre...

In addition, Sitges is a city of museums, with such important museums as the Maricel, halfway between "Modernist" and "Historicist", the Cau Ferrat, which used to be a meeting place for artists, with its exhibition of forged iron and paintings by Santiago Rusiñol and El Greco. Other recommended visits include the Church of Sant Bartomeu and Santa Tecla, or the Vinyet Sanctuary.
The benign climate, the beaches, the picturesque streets and a bustling commercial area make Sitges one of the best places to visit year-round.

 

Don't leave Sitges without having tasted the 'xato' a local specialty.

Sitges is a beautiful resort but for somewhere that is advertised as having great night life we have yet to find that. None of the pubs & restaurants have either music or dancing & coming from Ireland we love both. The main thing that everyone does at night time is people watch, can get tedious after a week.

  4. SITGES - pat & sand (22 Jul 2012 - 10:45)

    Le St Tropez espagnole sans le côté "bling" plutôt familiale. Le côté gay n'est pas dérangeant pour les enfants, c'est même sympa...La ville est chouette, les plages superbes et la mer extra. Pas de complexe hôtelier, que de petits hôtels et beaucoup de très belles villas modernes ou fin 19ème. Il fait bon se promener le soir sur le bord de mer à vélo et prendre un verre sur la plage...Possibilité de faire du jet ski (location au port). La vue d'une chambre sur la mer et le golf est top! Une petite ville cool...
