Location description from owner

The Catalonia region

Sitges

Back in medieval times, Sitges was essentially a small fishing village, and life was organized around Baluard headland, where the parish church, hospital and cemetery were, as well as a small group of houses, all enclosed and connected to the rest of the village by a bridge at the top of Major or Main Street. There are references to the existence of different gates that closed off Nou, Tacó, Carreta, Aigua and Davallada Streets and several towers, possibly erected in the 14th century, a fact that shows the entire village was walled.

Centuries later, and thanks to the initiative of artists, cultural motivators and patrons of the arts, like Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas, Miquel Utrillo or Charles Deering, Sitges became a standard setter for writers, painters, musicians and other intellectuals and an important center for the spreading of Modernisme (Catalan Modernism). During the passage from the 19th to the 20th century, the town became home to painters, sculptors, musicians and intellectuals who left their mark here that Sitgetans have maintained to this day.
Today, Sitges is known around the world for its heritage and for being a cosmopolitan town that continues to lure people belonging to the world of art and culture from all over.Sitges has many festivals all year round. Beaches - The beautiful beaches of Sitges are a short 10 minute drive away from Almiral.
There are 17 different beaches along the 4 km stretch. Beaches in front of the main town have sun beds, umbrellas, showers, bars and pedallos available.
The promenade that runs the length of the beaches is popular for summer evening strolls and perfect for rollerblading or biking on its smooth surface.
Night Life - Pacha, one of the biggest nightclub owners in Spain with clubs in Ibiza, Marbella and Madrid have one of their first discotheques in Sitges. There is a good mixture of nationalities, people and ages which makes for a very relaxed atmosphere.
Sitges has many festivals all year round including the famous Sitges Carnival and International Film Festival.

“A great venue with amazing views, fantastic amenities, and a multitude of uses!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2012

What a great venue with amazing views, fantastic amenities, and a multitude of uses! We had our wedding there in June 2012 and stayed there for 3 nights, resident facilities were fantastic with plenty of entertainment for people no matter what the weather was like. Each guest room had its own personality and character, the design and effort into doing this successfully was something else and as a wedding venue we couldn’t have asked for a more stunning venue! Staff were friendly (who were on call if needed) and Paul was very welcoming and eager to help and accommodate in any way possible during the booking process.
