Sitges Information – Location and Surroundings

Sitges is a Mediterranean coastal town, located in the Garraf area in the province of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Spain

Sheltered by the Garraf mountains and due to its geographical position in the Mediterranean, Sitges has a warm “micro-climate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year. Moreover, throughout the year numerous events take place in this beautiful town: the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, Carnival, the Festa Major, Theatre Festivals, The Barcelona-Sitges Vintage Car Rally, Harvest Festival, concerts … the list goes on, however one can also enjoy simply taking a stroll along the sea-front boulevard, a bike ride through the Garraf Natural Park or soak up the atmosphere of the Sitges nights on the renowned “Dos de Mayo” street.

Four kilometres of beach with a delightful sea-front promenade featuring turn of the 20th century colonial “Indiano” mansions on one side and the sea on the other, makes it always a good excuse for a trip to Sitges.

Two residential areas located some distance from Sitges are within the boundaries of the Sitges municipality and are administered by the town hall. One is the village of Garraf located on the coast just off the C-31 on the corniche road between Castelldefels and Sitges and the other is a residential area called Les Botigues de Sitges which is closer to the town of Castelldefels. Both areas have their own marinas, that of Les Botigues is called Port Ginesta.
