Modernism and the Mediterranean Sea

In the 19th and 20th centuries, this coastal town became a benchmark for Catalan Modernism thanks to artists like Santiago Rusiñol and Ramón Casas.

The rich cultural past of Sitges can be seen all along the streets of the old quarter. In the Paseo de la Ribera you will find the emblematic Church of San Bartomeu and Santa Tecla, built in the 17th century. Nearby you can find the buildings of the Town Hall and the old Town Market, made of iron at the beginning of the 19th century. One of the most representative monuments in town was built at the beginning of the 20th century: Maricel Palace. There are two museums on that same street: Maricel Museum, which has an important collection of modern and medieval art; and Can Ferrat Museum, situated in the old house of the painter Santiago Rusiñol, which displays works by Rusiñol himself and artists such as Camarasa, Zuloaga and Picasso, amongst others. The Romantic Museum is also worthwhile - it has a collection of old dolls belonging to the writer Lola Anglada. In this area you will also discover many Neoclassical and Modernist mansions.
