Sitges Hotels

Mini guide to Sitges

     

Sitges is situated near the thriving tourist and business Mecca of Barcelona. It has been referred to as the 'jewel of the Mediterranean', and its long history has enabled it to reject the heavy commercialism of many other Spanish resorts.

Many of the sights here are clustered around the old town, which sits on a small headland. This area contains medieval fortress walls and numerous museums, and is awash with narrow sloping streets and whitewashed hacienda-style buildings.

One of the main draws here is the 19th century church with its Gaudi-inspired turret. There is also an art museum featuring works by Picasso and El Greco, among others. The other reason people come to Sitges is for its beach - a long series of curved bays formed by man-made rock breakwaters.

An interesting walk takes you along the palm-lined seafront promenade running southwest from the church to the Hotel Terramar. This walk is lined with tall, elegant townhouses and is wide, clean and bustling with joggers, cyclists, rollerbladers and strollers. Most of the bars, restaurants and nightclubs are situated in the old town and along the promenade.

Shopping goods range from antiques to beachwear. There are plenty of chic boutiques, shoe shops and stylish interior-design shops. Good buys include pottery, leather, cava wine and metal ornaments. Restaurants specialising in seafood abound in the old town and along the beach. The nightlife is lively and consists of scores of bars and nightclubs.

A good local excursion is to Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia. Here you can shop and watch street art on Las Ramblas, eat seafood at the Olympic Port, visit the medieval architecture of the Gothic quarter, and gaze at the jaw-dropping Gaudi-designed Sagrada Familia Cathedral.

Sitges is a 30-minute drive from the bustling international Barcelona Airport. From Barcelona, take the C32 motorway to Sitges. By train from Barcelona Airport, go to Sants Barcelona and take one of the hourly trains from Sants to Sitges.
