Hotels in Sitges on the Costa Dorada (Daurada), Cataluña, Spain

Sitges, Corpus Christi Celebrations, Catalonia, Spain
Costa Dorada Hotels by Location:
Costa Dorada - Calafell - Cambrils - Coma-Ruga - La Pineda - L'Ampolla
Salou - Sitges - Tarragona - Vilaseca
Sitges - 30km south of Barcelona, is definitely the highlight of the Costa Daurada - the great weekend escape for young Barcelonans, who have created a resort very much in their own image. It's also a noted gay holiday destination, with a nightlife to match; indeed, if you don't like vigorous action of all kinds, you'd be wise to avoid Sitges in the summer: staid it isn't. As well as a certain style, the Barcelona trippers have brought with them the high prices from the Catalan capital, while finding anywhere to stay (at any price) can be a problem in summer unless you book well in advance.

Sitges Hotels / Self-Catering / Vacation Rentals in Sitges

Sitges is an attractive seaside town on the Costa Dorada, about 25 miles (40km) to the south-west of Barcelona. The resort has a lot to offer including an attractive old town, several good beaches, art museums and famous festivals. Sitges first became fashionable in the late 19th century when writers and artists were attracted to what was then a picturesque little fishing village.

There are a couple of excellent art museums in the town. The Museu Cau Ferrat is housed within a couple of fisherman's cottages which were once home to artist Santiago Rusinol. Opened in 1932, the museum displays paintings and ceramics by the likes of Pablo Picasso, El Greco and Rusinol himself. The Museu Marciel houses a collection of statues, paintings, ceramics and furniture which was assembled by American collector Charles Deering. 

The collection is housed within a former hospital which dates back to the 14th century. Another of Sitges' museums is the Museu Romantic, which occupies the 18th century home of the wealthy Falc and Llopis families. Inside is a fine collection of period furniture and antique dolls.

In the centre of Sitges is the old quarter which dates from medieval times. The area is characterised by narrow cobblestone streets and old fishermens cottages with terracotta roofs. Sights include the Baroque-style church and remains of the medieval ramparts.

Sitges has 17 beaches in total, with many of them situated close to the town centre. One of the most popular beaches, especially with young people, is Playa de la Ribera close to the church of Sant Bartomeu. Quieter beaches can be found further to the west, some of which are frequented by naturists. The most popular family beaches in Sitges are Playa de la Fragata, San Sebastian and Playa de los Barcos, all of which have shallow water making them suitable for young children. San Sebastian is especially attractive as it is backed by palm trees, cafes and elegant 1920's apartments.

Sitges is renowned for its lively and colourful festivals, with many of them taking place throughout the period of Lent. The most famous fiesta is the Sitges Gay Carnival in late January and early February, the highlight being the grand parade. Sitges has long had a reputation as being open-minded and bohemian, so it's no surprise the resort is a popular gay destination. The town has several gay bars and discos, and the beach of Playa de las Balmins is popular with gay naturists.

Another important event in Sitges is the Catalan Film Festival which takes place in the autumn.

Sitges has an attractive seafront esplanade, best enjoyed during the evening when you can relax in one of the cafe-bars and watch the world go by. The town has many excellent Spanish restaurants offering sea food, paella and other traditional dishes.

The nearest airport to Sitges is at Barcelona. MonBus operate a bus service from the airport to Sitges, and there is also a train service although you have to change at Barcelona's Sants station.
