Sitges, a beautiful village only 30 min by train, has always been a place that has captivated artists, tourists and general visitors from all parts.

Sitges has preserved important medieval parts and references as an ancient fishing village, offering visitors a valuable architectural heritage that our private guide will show you for a pleasant walking tour along cobblestone streets.
