Why Visit Sitges?

Sitges History

Sitges is a medieval walled costal town. Today little remains of the old city walls and the castle has completely gone. However, there is still a small section of the old wall and moat plus plenty of whitewashed fishermans houses from c1700 or earlier in the medieval quarter.

Sitges is situated between the sea and the mountains of the Garraf Natural Park. The Mediterranean Sea coastline of Garraf with the mountain backdrop create a natural setting for this town.

The origins of Sitges are that of a fishing village and wine trading port. The town has been much favoured by artists, the bohemian crowd and more recently has developed a large LBGT community. Since the 1800s Sitges has been more known as a tourist resort with much more than just beaches.

Where to Eat Sitges Day Trip 2024

The gastronomy of Catalonia is rich and varied. In the mountainous regioins typical food is grilled meats, stews and grilled vegetables. In the coastal towns and villages it is the typical Mediterranean diet of fish and seafood with fresh vegetables, olives and olive oil rice and pasta. Paella will be served in almost every restaurant.

My recommended places to look for restaurants are behind Sant Sebastià beach or along passeig de la Ribera which is the palm tree lined boulevard on the beach front from the church going south.

In the centre of town I can recommend the El Merci Sitges Sitges restaurant or any of the restaurants in the small passages in this area.

Note: Breakfast is from 08:00 to 10:30 ish, Lunch is from 13:30 to 15:30 ish, Dinner is from 19:30 to 22:00 ish.

Sitges is an absolute hive of great restaurants and to make this list small, I have only included places where I have eaten.
