last week of september 2010

by Tourist2010

Hello,
we're going with 10 girls to Sitges the last week of September.
Are the bars and clubs still open (because September is not in 'season' anymore)? And is nightlife fun for girls? Because I read it's a 'gay-city'and there are many gay-clubs/bars. But are there also 'normal' clubs/bars that are open the last week of september 2010?

I will not say Sitges is a "gay-city". It's a real town where all kinds of people and families do live all year round. It happens to have a beautiful old town and good beaches, and a tradition of not bothering about other's private lives and sexual preferences, so it became a "gay-friendly" destination many years ago.

So, the "normal bars" there tend to be open to everybody, you will find both gay and hetero people everywhere and this is the beauty of Sitges. There are some gay bars and special gay nights in others, but you will find info about these once there, look for the flyers at the fashion shops and bars to know what's on. Last week of September will be not as crowded as in the peak of summer, but still quite lively especially if the weather is still good. It may be quieter on weekdays, but you can always head to Barcelona. Have fun!

Hi, bars and clubs will still be open but a little quieter than in the height of the season. Sitges is not a gay only resort, fortunately, and there are plenty of venues that are suitable for us straight folk. The train ride into Barcelona takes about half an hour and travels along the coast for part of the way so some time spent there is a must.
Enjoy.

Yes, yes, yes and yes. The bars are still open on September. The nightlife is very fun for everybody. There are gays but is not a place only for gays, everybody is very welcome. And there are also bars that are not specifically for gay people, I understand that you mean that when you say "normal".

And congratulations! Because you're going to have a big surprise during your trip: the last week of September Sitges celebrate his "Festa Petita", that means fireworks and a lot of parties and traditional celebrations. You can find more info in my Sitges page http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/eecb2/3debe/a/

Saludos :o)

Travel Tips for Sitges

August. Festa Major, Sant Bartomeu

by Labrix

Sant Bartomeu day is the 24th of August. He is the patron of Sitges, so all this week the town celebrate his Festa Major, the main one.

The streets are full of typical dances, concerts, "castellers", "diables" (devils), the "drac" (dragon) and "aliga" (eagle), both going with the "diables". Also the gegants (giants) are wonderful, especially if you go with children. And many, many other things.

But the best moment is the night of the fireworks on the beach, they do it the day 23rd at 23:00 h. It's very famous and many people comes from everywhere to see it, so, here you have a good advise: take a sandwich, a drink, a beach towel, good company and go to the beach, as minimum, 1 hour before it starts, if not, you wouldn't find a place to see the fireworks. They launch them from the church area.

I founded in Youtube some videos about the Festa Major. So here they goes:

Museo Romàntic

by call_me_rhia

The Romantic Museum, here's one museum that did not move me. The official name is "Can Llopis" and it's an 18th century that has been very well preserved , depicting the way of life of The Romantic Museum "Can Llopis" is a house built at the end of the 18th century catalan bourgeoisie house. What you can see inside is a typical neoclassical house and furniture.
To make it worse there's a doll collection of 400 pieces! It drove me nuts!
it's still a good place to visit for lovers of this kind of architecture

Sitges

by June.b

"The Beach"

Sitges is about half an hour train ride away from Barcelona. Small quaint town with lovely beaches. It's sort of the small Ibiza or the St. Tropez of Spain.

Sitges is well known for it's lovely beaches, 17 in total. The easiest happening place to reach from Barcelona.

So if you have time or a day to spare while in Barcelona, put it in your itinerary.

"Wonderful Promenade"

The promenade is flat, wide and bordered by numerous places to stop for food and drink, and until you get to the bars and restaurants nearest to the church, not too expensive. Very little in the way of tacky merchandise and each of the side streets off the main promenade, have enticing shops, buildings or eating places to enjoy on your evening meander.
