Tucked between the Garraf Massif and the Mediterranean Sea, Sitges is a stylish beach resort less than an hour from Barcelona. Growing in popularity with artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the seaside resort has transformed into a boho bolthole. Today, a Sitges holiday attracts art lovers in their droves, as well as gastronomes, culture cravers, and of course, sun worshippers.
Beyond the wealth of Modernista architecture in the Old Town, you'll find a palm-lined promenade overlooking blonde-sand beaches. Some of the best known in town include La Fragata, Terramar, Bassa Rodona and L'Estanyol.
While beaches certainly steal the spotlight in Sitges, the resort is hardly short on culture. Thanks to its artistic leanings, a Sitges holiday can include visits to a range of museums and galleries, including the Maricel and Cau Ferrat, both of which feature works by two of Spain's finest artists – El Greco and Picasso.
As one of Europe's best nightlife and LGBTQ destinations, Sitges is renowned for its year-round party scene. Expect lively cocktail bars and nightclubs like Pacha, which opened its first club in Sitges back in 1967. While some bars and clubs attract a predominantly gay crowd, all are friendly and welcoming and many cater for a mixed clientele. There's also plenty of restaurants and tapas bars if you're after a more chilled out evening.
Despite its compact size, Sitges is also known for its festivals. A highlight of the calendar is the Sitges Carnival in February when some 250,000 people descend on the resort to enjoy colourful parades, street parties and live music. The Sitges Vintage Car Rally in March is another popular event, featuring hundreds of vintage cars and their appropriately attired drivers. More recently, Gay Pride Sitges in June has become one of Europe's premier Pride events.
