Something for everybody
There are plenty of things for everyone to do. As well as the beach, visitors can enjoy the local culture and art, historic sites and many festivals and events including the famous Sitges International Film Festival and the colourful Carnival Week. Barcelona is about forty minutes away in air-conditioned trains. It offers a huge opportunity for sightseeing including its Gothic Quarter, Gaudi's Park Guell, the Picasso Museum and La Sagrada Família. An hour away from Sitges is the fun park of Puerta Ventura with a large theme park and water park. A similar distance are the errie rocks of Monserrat with its monastery up on high - accessed by cable car. Now with new fast roads, the tax-free shopping haven of the principality of Andorra, set in the stunning Pyrennes mountains, is within easy reach.
It's sunny every month
Sitges has at least three hundred days of sunshine every year. Its micro climate means that, in the cooler periods of Autumn and Spring, it can be cloudy just over the hills of Garraf yet brilliant sunshine in Sitges. Locals and visitors take advantage of the street cafe culture in which to sit and soak up the sun. Enjoy a long lunch on one of the numerous restaurant terraces any time of the year when it's grey and damp back home.
The language - don't worry !
Locals born and bred in Sitges speak Catalan (regional language) and they all speak Castilian Spanish as well. There are many ex-pats living and working in the town from the UK and Europe so nearly everyone in the tourist service industry speaks a smattering of English.
