MY “BLANCA SUBUR” SITGES

THE BEST OF SITGES

Sitges, where every moment shines

Sitges, a picturesque coastal town nestled at the base of the El Garraf massif, boasts a storied past dating back to the mythical "Blanca Subur" of ancient Iberian lore, as recounted by Greek sailors millennia ago. Today, it stands as a beacon on the global tourism map, renowned for its enchanting blend of cultural richness and scenic beauty. A century ago, Sitges began its ascent to cosmopolitan acclaim, thanks in part to the presence of Santiago Rusiñol, whose influence transformed it into a hub for artists and intellectuals of the Catalan Art Nouveau movement. Since then, art and tourism have intertwined seamlessly in Sitges' identity. Strolling through Sitges, one can't help but be mesmerized by its unique luminosity, a quality that has long enchanted visitors and artists alike. From its rich cultural heritage to its breathtaking vistas, Sitges offers a tapestry of experiences that beckon travelers to explore and immerse themselves in its timeless allure.

Trip Itinerary

Sitges old town
Immerse yourself in the winding streets of the Old Town, where medieval alleys lead to bustling squares adorned with picturesque cafes and boutique shops
Sant Bartomeu & Santa Tecla
Feel the heartbeat of tradition as you explore centuries-old architecture of the iconic Church of Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla
Palau Maricel
The Maricel Palace, once the residence of American tycoon Charles Deering, underwent a transformation in 1970 when Dr. Jesús Pérez-Rosales bestowed upon Sitges his extensive collection of art and decorative pieces. This impressive collection encompasses a diverse array of medieval artworks, including Romanesque murals, Gothic wooden paintings, altarpieces, and sculptures, alongside Renaissance carvings and notable sculptures from 19th-century Catalonia
Cau Ferrat Museum
Preserved in its original state as the artist left it, the house offers a captivating journey back in time, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the essence of the era. Within its walls resides an unparalleled collection of wrought iron, considered one of Europe’s finest, alongside a remarkable assortment of archaeological and contemporary glass—among the most extensive in Catalonia and Spain. The house also showcases an eclectic array of sculptures, ceramics, and furniture, providing insight into the artistic milieu of the period. Moreover, it houses the most significant compilation of paintings and drawings by Rusiñol himself, as well as works by esteemed artists from his circle, including Ramon Casas, Miquel Utrillo, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Ramon Pichot, Aleix Clapés, Isidre Nonell, Ignacio Zuloaga, and emerging talents such as Hermen Anglada Camarasa and Pablo Ruiz Picasso. Notably, two El Greco paintings, discovered by Zuloaga in Paris and subsequently acquired by Rusiñol, are prominently displayed—a testament to the house’s rich artistic heritage and its role in hosting modernist festivities in Sitges back in 1894.
