To the southwest of Barcelona is Sitges, a beautiful town by the sea that combines a more modernist style of building with the mountainous Garraf natural park. If you want to spend your holidays in Sitges and you don’t know what to do there, then discover the incredible corners and the number of activities that this town has to offer.

First of all, you need to wander around the old town and explore its corners surrounded by a more modernist style, built by the Spanish colonies that returned at the beginning of the 20th century after years in the Americas. Also in the old town, but more on the seafront, you will find the fishermen’s houses, characterised by their white and blue colour.

As you stroll along the city’s seafront promenade, it is essential that you stop off at the Baroque church of Sant Bartolomeu i Santa Tecla, one of the city’s most emblematic buildings.

Discover the city’s most famous museums

One of the city’s iconic museums is the Museu de Cau Ferrat, belonging to the Catalan modernist painter and writer Santiago Rusiñol. This space was his house-workshop, where nowadays, we can find various paintings, sculptures and ceramics.

Another of the most famous museums in Sitges is the Museu Palau Maricel, where you can find works of various artistic variants from the 10th to the 20th century.

You can visit these two museums from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am and, depending on the time of year, the closing time may vary. In addition, for €10 you can visit both museums.

The Can Llopis Romantic Museum is a must if you come to the city, a building donated by one of the richest families in the city: the Llopis Family, for the creation of this museum.
