A party town like no other !
When the Roman’s first visited Spain over two thousand years ago, they built a town called Subur. Sitges now stands on that very same spot. We all know how the Roman centurions liked to party and that tradition continues to this every day. Welcome to Sitges, a party-town like no other.
Travelling to Sitges is easy, accommodation plentful, the climate perfectly Mediterranean, the people relaxed, the beaches long and sandy, the food and drink easy to come by and full of regional variety. Unspoilt by the tourist boom of the 1960’s, Sitges has retained that “picture-postcard” look, with narrow cobbled streets, beautiful Spanish architecture and unspoilt scenic views; a world away from the plastic and the concrete of the more traditional Spanish resorts along the Costa Brava and Costa Del Sol. With a microclimate of its own, Sitges has over 300 days of sunshine with temperatures ranging from 26 to 33 degrees during the summer monthes. This is Spain as it was meant to be… but even better!
Sitges has a long-standing gay appeal, being renowned as a bohemian hang-out and artist’s colony since the early nineteen hundreds. Painters such as Picasso, Dali and Miro adored the town. Sitges has to be one of the easiest gay destinations to visit. It is just 20 minutes train journey from Barcelona. And the resort is the perfect base for exploring the other parts of Catalunya.
The first gay disco in Spain opened in Sitges 25 years ago. There is 1 large gay beach, 2 nudist beaches, 450 shops, dozens of outdoor cafes, amazing restaurants, 20 gay bars, 2 amazing nightclubs, 2 very busy saunas and thousand of hot homo hombres to keep you busy. And all within a 10 minute walking distance ! So in this case, small really is beautiful! The partying starts at 11pm and doesn’t finish until sunset.
There is a fiesta every week in Sitges, or so it seems. The Catalans know how to throw a party and every weekend there is some special event or occasion that deserves the odd firework and a cold glass of sparkling Cava. So whether it’s Carnival in February, Corpus Christi in June, the Fiesta Mayor in August or the Film Festival in October, there’s always a party taking place in Sitges.
