Sitges, Sitges

Spain 08870's insider take:

Less than 35 minutes away by train from Barcelona's Sants station, Sitges is a small, self-confident seaside town. It was "discovered" as a bohemian outpost in the latter part of the 19th century by the artist Santiago Rusiñol, who made it the darling of Barcelona's artistic classes when he moved his studio there and began throwing decadent parties. The feeling of bonhomie has survived to this day, and the town's whitewashed houses, pretty cobbled streets, ornate villas, and beaches attract a diverse crowd of gay partygoers, families, and hipsters. The most exciting times to visit are during carnival (early spring), the Festa Major (August), and a film festival that specializes in all things macabre (October). Ornately tiled, neogothic Cau Ferrat was built by Rusiñol to join his two cottages together and is now a popular museum (Carrer del Fonollar; 34-93-894-0364). Arrive early to beat the crowds.
