About Sitges

Unspoiled by the boom: Sitges is one of very few holiday retreats in Spain that was unspoiled by the tourist boom of the 60’s and 70’s and the consequent concrete tower buildings because it was already well established as a holiday getaway for the affluent Barcelonians and Cuban sugar and cigar importers since the 1800’s. Many of their beautiful homes still exist in the Calle Isla de Cuba area and all along the sea front, though they are now converted to hotels, restaurants or apartments.

If you walk around the old, old part of Sitges in the area of the church, you’ll see blue lines painted along the bottom of many homes. They were/are fishermen’s homes. It’s a sign to keep quiet as they sleep by day.

Sitges carnival is the only carnival in Spain that continued to run every year throughout Franco’s reign. Franco banned all such fiestas but Sitges refused to give in.

How do I say Sitges? Sitges is pronounced very much like ‘Seechez’ but say it very rapidly with the ‘e’ in ‘chez’ almost silent. It is not pronounced like ‘Sitchez’, but even if you can’t say it, you’re not alone. Most Spanish people can’t say it either because it’s a Catalonian word and in Castellano (Spanish) two consonants rarely follow each other and in no instance does a ‘g’ follow a ‘t’ in Spanish so they get all tongue tied too.
