From Medieval Fishing Village to Cosmopolitan City
Just south of Barcelona, the historic city of Sitges has attracted painters, sculptors, and writers for centuries--offering spectacular coastal panoramas and an average of 300 days of sun each year. Its location on the Mediterranean coast at the foot of the Garraf Massif mountain range provides abundant recreation—from sailing to hiking to horseback riding. Spend the day on one of the city’s 17 pristine beaches or explore the Medieval structures of the city center, which began as a fishing town. From vineyards to cycling to kayaking—Sitges offers endless allures.
