Welcome To Sitges

The once Mediterranean fishing village of Sitges is a wonderful, happy-go-lucky town, which in recent years has been transformed from a simple Catalan fishing community, into a centre for art, culture, gastronomy and architecture. Yet, the wonderful thing about Sitges is that it still flawlessly retains its traditional, friendly charm and welcoming atmosphere. Wandering through the town you’ll find yourself swept up with the happy-go-lucky lifestyle that is quintessential of Sitges and its inhabitants.

Situated a convenient 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona, Sitges has been labelled a Catalonian pearl and it’s not surprising as it’s home to some of the best beaches along the Barcelona, or Garraf coastline. Nestled between the Garraf Massif mountain range and the Mediterranean Sea, Sitges benefits from its sheltered location, enjoying a microclimate with 300 days of sun every year. Making it a more agreeable and sunnier climate than Barcelona.

Gourmet

Sitges is synonymous with excellent gastronomy and a vibrant nightlife. In our local neighbourhood you’ll find some of the best tapas bar in town. The local region is renowned for its seafood rice dishes (Arròs a la Sitgetana) and El Xató, a mix between a salad and Catalan antipasti.

The famous Penedes wine and local cava are a must try during your stay. Malvasia de Sitges is another very well known winery. It is a sweet and fragrant desert wine produced in just a few hectares of land.

The micro climate of Sitges with the sea breeze is one of the reason this wine is exquisite. It is interesting to know that the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity recognize Malvasia de Sitges in their Ark of Taste. If you speak some Spanish you may want to check the Slow Food Website.

El Cable  tapas bar across the street of Casita Sitges offers a well chosen selection of native wines including Malvasia.
