    Dominating the skyline of Sitges, the Església de Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla dates from the 17th century. The octagonal tower, however, is a 19th century addition. The church replaced a previous 14th century Gothic structure, which in turn had been built over the ruins of a Romanesque chapel. Behind the church is the old town of Sitges and some of the town's museums.

    the church from a little park below

    This is Sitges most visible landmark, and one of the most impressive too. This "esglesia de sant bartolmeu i santa tecla" is a little baroque jewel on top of a tiny hill. The best views can be had from the beach below - and from afar, too. Inside it's not really that spectacular - but from the outside it really dominates to landscape (and townscape). Right behind it there's a quaint lane filled with wonderful buildings and interesting museums! Definitely my Stges highlight.
