Sitges, 35 Kms south of Barcelona, belongs to the region of the Garraf. It is bathed by 18 km of coastline, most of it magnificent beaches; it is protected at the rear by the southernmost tip of the massif of Garraf, a limestone peak which acts as a natural barrier against the cold north winds. Sitges thus enjoys a mild microclimate almost all year round.

In its old quarter, with its narrow paved streets ideal for ambling along in the daytime or at night, art abounds in multiple expressions. Guided tours are available to acquaint you better with artistic and historical treasures.
