    Although not terribly ancient, the Maricel de Mar building is one of Sitges' most recognisable features. The building as it stands dates from 1911, but it was built on the foundation of an older chapel whose arches were incorporated in the existing building. It was rebuilt as a residence in an eclectic Gothic style, but now serves as a museum housing a collection of mediaeval artwork. Maricel de Mar is linked to the Maricel de Terra building by a bridge.

    Museu Maricel de Mar

    This is a sort of municipal museum for Sitges, although it is not quite billed that way. There are two components to it, one that is next to the Parish Church and that contains a small number of pieces for a temporary exhibit, and a more permanent collection with pieces from Mediaeval works to modern ones. Like all good municipal museums it has an impressive collection of ceramics and pottery, but there are also quite a few good paintings and lots of mediaeval sculpture and religious works. This is a good way to get an idea of art tastes and styles in Catalunya outside of Barcelona, especially when you hear the sea coming in from the windows that face the Mediterranean.

    This museum is part of the old Charles Deering’s house. What you can see here is art and objects that has to do with the life and history of Sitges. Other things to see here: art (also gothic and romanic), all times and style objects and forniture, even a chapel.
    One of the best parts of the museum is the belvedere. The contrast of the white room and the white esculptures againts the blue sea that you can see throuhg the glass wall.

    Usual Timetable: tuesday to friday: 10-13.30/15-18.30; saturday 10-19 (non stop); sundays (10-15)
    Summer: tuesday to sunday :10-14/17-21
