Catalonia, Spain is a small city about 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona
renowned worldwide for its Film Festival and Carnival. Between the hills
and the sea, it is known for its much-frequented beaches, nightspots, and
historical sites. While the roots of Sitges' artsy reputation date
back to the late 19th century, when Catalan painter Santiago Rusiñol
took up residence there during the summer, the town really came into its
own during the 1960s, when it was the only centre for the counterculture
on the mainland of Spain (then still under the dictatorship of Francisco
Franco), and became known as a sort of "Ibiza in miniature". Today,
Sitges can be considered a dynamic cultural oasis, basing its economy on
tourism and culture offering more than 4,500 hotel beds, half of them in
four-star hotels. The firm commitment for quality infrastructures has converted
Sitges into a first-class destination in terms of tourism of congresses,
conferences, seminars and company meetings in the Mediterranean area.
It is also a gay tourist town - in July and August gay men and lesbians
visit Sitges as "one of the most popular gay holiday spots in Europe".
Sitges is very international. Almost 35% of the ca. 25.642 inhabitants
are from the Netherlands, Great Britain, France and Scandinavia whose children
can attend international schools.
