What to do during the Easter holidays?
Spending holidays in Sitges is the best choice. This city is synonymous with enjoying unforgettable days and full of activities related to leisure, culture, nature, etc. In this Barcelona city there is always something to do, and it will be totally impossible for you to get bored during your stay in it. You will want to return. Its Mediterranean character is only a small part of the great charm that has one of the most beautiful coastal towns in Europe. If you arrive at this point and you still have doubts about why Sitges is the ideal place for your Easter holidays, you will clear them by reading this:
Go out in one of the best leisure areas in Spain
The Easter holidays give us a few days of much needed relaxation at this time of year, and to take advantage of them and forget about any concern, few places have the leisure offer presented by Sitges.
The Port of Aiguadolç is an enclave of obligatory walk to enjoy the Mediterranean charm of this city mixed with a variety of places where it is worth having a drink. Some will consider it as mere posture, but enjoying a good wine or gin tonic a few meters from the sea, with a nice evening breeze and the sound of water crashing into the hull of the boats is a gift that Sitges gives us and not we can refuse.
Experience its art and culture in first hand
Modernism is the soul of a city that boasts art. The alleys of its historic center (where the emblematic church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla are located) invite you to get lost in them and not want to leave, but their heritage is not only in their facades and tiles, but also hidden inside of some of its buildings, in museums. To promote the visit to these cultural centers, special activities such as free concerts or night visits are always being organized, which is always an incentive. The Cau Ferrat (where you can see some works by Picasso) or the Maricel Museum is the great references of a city that knows how to take advantage of its enormous cultural potential. Here is a preview of what you can find in the House Museum of the painter Santiago Rusiñol:
Holidays in Sitges: outdoor activities
Do you want to enjoy a nice walk, make a bike tour with the whole family or play with the kids on the beach during your holidays? Sitges has many plans to do outdoors. Here are some of them:
Enjoy its 26 beaches
Easter is one of the most ideal times of the year to enjoy the beaches of Sitges. Less crowded than in summer and without the suffocating summer heat, it is a perfect period to go on foot and get lost among the infinity of its details. Urban beaches, incredible sandbanks mixed with vegetation and rocky coves full of Mediterranean charm so characteristic of the Costa del Garraf … But between the 26, you have to make an honorable mention to the San Sebastian Beach, twinned with the one of Donosti and considered by the prestigious New York Times as the best urban beach in Europe. Without a doubt, getting the rental of an apartment in Sitges next to it is a huge privilege that is worth enjoying.
Walk through the Garraf Natural Park
Hiking in Sitges is one of the best activities to enjoy its magnificent natural environment with the pleasant and mild temperatures typical of Easter, where the beginning of spring always gives us radiant days, and in this Barcelona city, even more. The mountains of Massís del Garraf are allied with the Mediterranean Sea to create a warm micro-climate practically every day of the year, which in the months of March, April and May gives us an ideal thermal sensation to make a route through the Park Natural del Garraf, where not only nature is the protagonist, since beyond its fauna, you can enjoy a panoramic view of everything Sitges that you will fall in love with, and you will also have access to a modernist palace called Plana Novella, which years ago became is a Buddhist temple, one of those recondite and special places that are worth reaching.Share
