Whether you come here on vacation directly, or if you are in Barcelona and want to make a getaway in the surroundings, Sitges, known worldwide for its International Film Festival, is a beautiful coastal town, which attracts more and more tourists from all over the world by the combination of its modernist buildings on the seashore without losing its essence of a fishing village.
At Fincas La Clau we tell you what you cannot miss on a visit to Sitges.
Visit its modernist buildings
One of the great attractions of Sitges is its architecture marked by the “Americans or Indians” who at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, returned from America with enough money to build new modernist-style houses, especially in the old town.
Take a tour of the fishermen’s neighborhoods
In contrast to this modernist architecture, the old town is full of fishermen’s houses by the sea, distinguished by their white facades.
Visit the Maricel Palace Museum
Palau Maricel originally housed eight fishermen’s houses, until Charles Deering bought it to create an art collection, acquiring the adjoining building that was the old hospital and which he transformed into his house to leave these fishermen’s houses as a private museum.
Enter the Cau Ferrat Museum
You cannot leave Sitges without visiting the museum that houses the works of Picasso or El Greco. Its former owner Santiago Rusiñol is considered one of the most transcendent artists of modernism in Catalonia,
Go to the church of Sant Bartolomeu
Undoubtedly, one of the most representative images of Sitges and its city is the church of San Bartolomeu, as it presides over the Sitges coastline from the top of a hill.
Stroll through the Indian houses on the seafront
The Sitges promenade is dotted with buildings considered small mansions in the style of colonial villas.
Along with all these visits, the ideal is to save time to go to the beach, especially now that the heat is on.
