Places to go and things to do in Sitges

Hit the lovely sands of Sitges

Hit the lovely sands of Sitges

For its small size, the town boasts of an incredible 17 beaches and all are regarded highly among tourists. Ranging from gay-friendly to nudist and family-friendly, whatever it is you’re looking for, there’s a beach for you. White and sandy stretches vary from being a short walk from the city centre to remote and secluded. While Platja de la Fragata, next to the church, has a volleyball net and pedalo hire making it popular for families, Garraf is a little remote but incredibly scenic with thanks to its backdrop of the Sierra de Coma Roja area. The popular stretches in the centre boast a clutch of seafront cafes and restaurants, too.

Soak up the history & culture

Sitges has charmed us with its cultural town for centuries, with awe-inspiring architecture - including its 20th century seafront mansions – art and treasure museums and historic tales. Visit the Cau Ferrat Museum, once home to the artist Santiago Rusiñol, whom upon his death left the house and its contents open to the general public – there are also museums like Maricel Museum and Museu Romantic worth of a visit. The Sitges Film Festival is also a must for fantasy and horror lovers.

Join the local Carnival

Summer brings out the town’s hedonistic flavour as the annual Sitges Carnival springs into action, attracting over a quarter of a million participating revelers each year. Imagine a host of parties, fiestas and parades dominating the narrow, cobbled streets with sightings of spectacular fancy dress, twinkling sequins, multi-coloured feathers and neon face paint – and if you haven’t seen it, we’re sure you’ll hear it, as it’s one of the largest events on the Catalan coast! Over 40 floats and 2,000 party-goers take to the streets during this event, so if you’re visiting in early March be sure to grab a costume and go crazy! Another important event in the town’s calendar is the annual Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, during which many celebrated actor and directors land up here.

Day trip to Garraf Park

For a change of pace, take a day trip to Garraf Park, an expansive 12,820 hectares of limestone hills and corresponding landscape to relax in nature’s lap. The features are of a typical Med scrubland with low rise shrubs and herbs, heavily wooded areas with tall holm oaks and Aleppo pine trees. Margello, a Mediterranean fan palm, rare and protected can also be seen here. Small animals such as Mediterranean tortoises, wild boar, rabbits, Bonelli's eagles, quails, falcons and few birds of prey have made it their home and can be spotted here.
