DRIVE TO SITGES
Meet your guide & driver
Around whitewashed streets
Let your guide show you around the beautiful alleys of the old town of Sitges, with its interesting modernist architecture, views over the Mediterranean sea, and plenty of unique details and stories.
You’ll learn about the famous Racó de la Calma (Corner or Calm) with the Cau Ferrat, once the home of modernist artist Santiago Rusiñol, who organized art and literature festivals there and collected wrought iron pieces and antique glass items that are still displayed there. And the Maricel Palace, once owned by the American millionaire Charles Deering, and now a fascinating art museum featuring pieces of local painters as well as medieval art and modernist sculpture, among other styles.
DRIVE BACK TO BARCELONA
Hop back to the car to get back to Barcelona. If you wish, you can ask your driver to take you on the Garraf road instead of the tunnel: it’s a very scenic winding road over the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean, that used to be the only way to get to Sitges from Barcelona before the tunnel was built. After leaving the Garraf mountains behind, the road connects with the motorway you took in the morning.
You’ll arrive to Barcelona on time for a late lunch on your own. We can drop you off back to your hotel or apartment, or at some nice local restaurant.
