    why do people come to Sitges ??

    by kenyneo Written Aug 31, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well needless to say its because of the long stretch of beach and the liberal environment ...well ...during summer its quite packed ...and so full of tourist ....take your sun tan lotion before you go for a stroll ....

    look out for some nice scenery for taking pics.... Btw going to the beach is easy, you take any road and it will definitely take you there but obviously its good to follow where the crowd goes. A good breakaway from Barcelona. Train from Barcelona takes about 40 mins. And it cost about Euro 10 for two and fro.

    The beach ...

    THE AMERICANS ROUTE

    by arlequin_g Written Oct 31, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of XVIII century people from Sitges crossed the Atlantic to go to Cuba to look for fortune. When coming back to Sitges they invested part of their savings on building mansions.
    Take in the tourist office a brochure with the itineray. You’ll discover very varied and intersting architecture in Sitges (Neo-classicisme romantique, Eclectisme, Art Nouveu and Noucentisme).

    MUSEU ROMANTIC, CAN LLOPIS

    by arlequin_g Updated Oct 31, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This big house was built in 1973 by a rich family who lived in Sitges and for many years was the most important house there. In 1935 it was given to be used as a museum.
    There are guided visits every hour o’clock. It’s about 45 minutes. Take a trip in the XIXth century and learn what was life like at that time. Visit it cause there are a lot of interesting things to be seen like the important colletion of china dolls (XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries) There are over 400. They were given by the artits and writer Lola Anglada. Don´t miss the carriage in the entrance wich was used to make trips to Barcelona. It took about 7 hours. Fortunately times has changed and we can make the trip in just 30 minutes : )

    Usual Timetable: tuesday to friday: 10-13.30/15-18.30 (last visits 12 (morning) and 15 (afteroon)); saturday 10-19 (non stop); sundays (10-15)
    Summer: tuesday to sunday :10-14/17-21 (last visits 13 (morning) and 20 (afteroon))

    The Shopping

    by bushes39 Written Dec 28, 2003

    Come the evening, and the streets of Sitges fill with people. There are a number of nice streets with wonderful shops throughout Sitges. If you're looking to get a little shopping done, check out Sitges before you rush off to Barcelona. You might find something very nice.

    The Beaches

    by bushes39 Written Dec 28, 2003

    The Beaches in Sitges are beautiful. I didn't get to enjoy them fully, as it was November and cold, but if the beaches are even half as lovely to the body as they are to the eye, one would have a wonderful time.

    The bars along the promenade in Sitges are great for those who can't stand the summer heat... and those who enjoy eating and drinking.
    In restaurant Pic Nic they serve excellent cod fish baked in the salt.

    El Cau Ferrat.
    Sitges is also know as the place where gay people meat each other and spend their holidays .... we did not know that when we visited the place, but we saw .... and heard it after our trip to Sitges.
    This place was the meeting point of some Catalan Intellectuals at the beginning of the 20th century.

    Palau Maricel

    by call_me_rhia Updated Nov 30, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The "maricel" is not a single building but a group of buildings behind the old church (esglesia de sant bartolomeu i santa tecla). originally it was a hospital, now they have been turned into an art museum.
    What I liked about this palace was not the museum itself, but the architecture: it's just anothe example of wonderful Catalan architecture of the turn of the century. The palace may look old but it is not, unless you can call 1910 old.
    The architect of this little jewel is Miquel Utrillo.

    Museo Romàntic

    by call_me_rhia Written Nov 29, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    It's really a symbol of the place. It's not very big inside but take a look at it. In one side (outside it) there is a balcony where you can take a time to relax watching the blue see.
