There are some lovely houses in the centre of town that were commissioned by notorious Sitges residents and built in the style that was fashionable at the time (1850-1930). The walk begins on Calle Hort Gran on the corner with Calle Rafael Llopart:
Casa Josep Mirabent Gatell, 1878. Architect: Jaume Suñe Juncosa. Calle Rafael Llopart, 2. It is a three floor neoclassical house set in a garden. The building features brick and stucco ornamentation and some elements of Arab inspiration. A stone railing surrounds the rooftop.
Walking down Calle Hort Gran:
Casa Ferret Carreras, 1912-1916. Calle Hort Gran 18, on the corner with Artur Carbonell. It is an eclectic house that stands in a garden. An interesting feature of the building is its octagonal turret with a tiled roof.
Continuing on Avinguda Artur Carbonell:
Train station, 1881. Plaça Eduard Maristany. Neoclassical building. It has lost its original profile with subsequent modifications and extensions.
Villa Remei, 1911, Architect Josep Maria Martino. Artur Carbonell, 25. The most outstanding features of this building are the wrought iron railings and the Modernista style railing on the rooftop.
Villa Subur, 1908, Architect Juli Battlevell. Avinguda Artur Carbonell, 23. A small single storey building in Modernista style. The façade is decorated with plant-like stucco reliefs and crowned by a stone balustrade with a round pediment framing the name of the house. There are also floral motives over door and window lintels.
Villa Havenmann, 1907. Initial project by architect J. L. Calvo. Revised by Josep Domènech Estapà. Carrer Artur Carbonell, 11-15.
The building is currently home to the Fundació Ave Maria, a charitable foundation. It is a Modernista-style house with an attached Romanesque style chapel. The windows designed by Domènech are different from the ground floor to those on the first floor, but share the same kind of stepped lintels reproduced again on the roof balustrade.
Leaving Calle Artur Carbonell, walk down the street and in front of Villa Havenmann turn left onto Calle Sant Bartomeu.
Casa Josep Carbonell, 1888. Architect Jaume Suñe i Juncosa. Carrer Sant Bartomeu 26. An eclectic style building built by textile trader Josep Carbonell. The façade is decorated in stucco: the ground floor imitates masonry blocks, while the first and second floors feature floral reliefs on a blue background. Balconies are in curved wrought iron except the middle one which is stone.
Casa Joan Robert Brauet, 1911. Architect unknown. Carrer Sant Bartomeu, 28. A feature of this three faced eclectic style building located on a chamfer in town is the stucco façade replicating stone masonry brickwork. The windows are framed with floral motives and the centre balcony is made of wrought iron.
