Once again this year, the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia returns to Sitges. A festival with a solid track record (this year 2023 will be its 56th edition) that has become, on its own merits, one of the most renowned film events in Europe.
When we think of the town of Sitges, some of the things that come to mind most quickly are, surely, tranquility and disconnection. And while these thoughts are true, it is also true that Sitges has numerous cultural events and festivals that offer many possibilities to its visitors. We tell you all about them in this post!
Summer has finally arrived in Sitges, a place that has become a very popular destination on the Mediterranean coast for everything it offers: tranquility, leisure, gastronomy, sports and, of course, beaches. Its unbeatable location, cradled between the mountains of Garraf and beautiful coves of crystal clear water, its combination of neighborhoods of white houses with modernist and colonial buildings, its history… We can give you hundreds of reasons why Sitges is the ideal destination to spend your holidays. Therefore, in this post, we recommend some plans to do if you have decided to spend a few days here.
When we think of the beach, summer comes to mind, and so does the heat and lots of people sunbathing next to us. But why should we only enjoy this wonder of nature that is the beach in summer? Here are 5 reasons why you should go to the beach in winter too.
After the Christmas season, and with the new year already consolidated, Sitges begins to prepare for what is undoubtedly the most important and international party in town: the Sitges Carnival, one of the most popular in Catalonia and an event that never lacks the most daring costumes, fun until late at night and the catchiest rhythms by carnival groups that liven up the party.
If you're thinking of a getaway to Sitges and you want to enjoy the Carnival, in this post we tell you about the most important activities you shouldn't miss.
Would you like to experience a Christmas with the sea in the background? In Sitges, the tradition of these dates combines perfectly with the mild Mediterranean climate. Enjoy the tranquility of this coastal town during your winter vacations and get to know how Christmas is lived in Sitges.
Sometimes we feel like improvising a plan with our special someone. Taking a trip just the two of us is a golden opportunity to spend time with our partner and treasure precious memories. However, sometimes it is difficult to find beautiful places for a romantic getaway, since the destination has to offer unique activities and plans for the occasion. We have the solution: a trip to our Sitges Group Apartments accommodations!
In this post we have devised a guide with romantic activities you can do in Sitges, our beautiful coastal town with lots of charm, so you can make the most of your stay.
Autumn has finally arrived in Sitges, and we are looking forward to it. The trees are beginning to take on the brown, orange and reddish tones so characteristic of this season and the typical ingredients of this time of year are back: mushrooms, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, chestnuts, etc. October is also the month of Halloween, but here in Catalonia we have a festival of our own culture: the traditional "Castanyada".
One of the most anticipated events in Sitges each year is Sitges Bears Week. An event that every year brings more than 5,000 people to Sitges and has become, on its own merits, one of the largest and best known Bear festivals in Europe. We told you before, and it's not something new, that Sitges is a gay-friendly town. An example of this is the big party that takes place every year during Sitges Gay Pride.
International Bears Sitges Week takes place from September 2 to 11. Unlike last year, this 2022 the event will be held as normal, and the classic "Bear Village" will be held again in Passeig Ribera, next to the "Sitges Pride Village.
This event is one of the largest and best known gay festivals in Europe. So, if you're thinking of visiting Sitges during International Bears Sitges Week, don't miss out on everything we tell you in this post.
August is synonymous with summer and the big festival in Sitges. Once again this year, the city puts on its best clothes to celebrate our town's big festival. Declared a Heritage Festival of National Interest in 1991 and 2016 by the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Festival of Sitges 2022 will take place from August 19 to 28.
Today, we want to explain everything that is being prepared to live and enjoy 100% these days. If you are going to visit Sitges soon, remember that in Sitges Group Apartments we have available tourist apartments to stay during the Festival.
Sitges has wonderful beaches, sun, tranquility and is located a few kilometers from the city of Barcelona, the Catalan capital. We have made a selection of our favorite beaches to help you choose where to go if you decide to go to this coastal town.
Summer has finally arrived, the good weather is here, and what everybody wants is to be in a place where you can easily go to the beach, stroll unhurriedly through alleys when the sun goes down and go out for a drink in a nice terrace at night. In short, enjoy a well-deserved rest near the sea.
Located in Barcelona province, just a few kilometres from the capital, we find Garraf county. This coastal area is known for its unique Mediterranean beauty: wedged in between the sea and the mountains, our county features crystalline beaches with kilometres of fine sand stretching towards the Garraf Massif, a karst formation with spectacular cliffs and hidden spots created by erosion.
In addition to the natural beauty of its landscapes, Garraf county also has numerous towns with cosmopolitan, medieval, Modernisme and fishermen’s buildings. Sitges is the main town in this county and the best example of this. If you’re thinking of coming to Sitges and want to visit more than just our little Mediterranean gem, this post includes some charming towns near Sitges.
From Sitges Groups Apartments we'have started a new collaboration with Mensajeros de la Paz Foundation. When making your reservation with us through our website, we give you the option to donate, in addition, an extra 1€ of your booking per day of stay to the Mensajeros de la Paz social project.
December is different in Sitges. Its pleasant climate and more than 300 days of sun each year make this Mediterranean gem the perfect place to enjoy Christmas. And today we want to tell you about Christmas and an event that is back again this year: the Sitges Christmas Festival 2019, which is the top Christmas patchwork festival in Spain.
Yet another year the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, otherwise known as the Sitges Film Festival, is back. This Festival has a solid history (it is celebrating its 52nd anniversary in 2019), and on its own merits it has become one of the most recognised film awards in Europe.
One more time , Sitges dresses in its best clothes to welcome the Feast of Corpus Christi. A celebration that this year will take place the next Thursday 20th June. This means the main acts of the Corpus Christi 2019 will happen during that weekend. A weekend that also coincides with the start of summer, Sant Joan's Eve and the end of the school year, so a lot of people will visit us during the Corpus 2019 in Sitges.
Going on vacation with children changes everything but it doesn't have to be a negative change. There are many destinations that offer all kinds of options and entertainment for children nowadays. Sitges is a good option if you want to enjoy a complete family holiday: beach, tranquillity, activities and proximity to Barcelona.
The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 is really close, most hotels and tourist apartments in Barcelona are already full and it's almost impossible to find a good accommodation in the big city during the dates it takes place. But, why not stay near Barcelona instead of in it? Get away from the hustle and bustle of the Catalan capital during those days and enjoy the perfect stay in Stiges.
