Sitges has the largest street carnival in mainland Europe (as well as numerous other festi- vals), is home to a major international ﬁlm festival and has ﬁve substantial museums and galleries. It is both a modern and exciting town with an excellent nightlife, but retains much of its original charm as a small coastal Catalan town.
Sitges is an up-market tourist destination and has some of the ﬁnest beaches in Spain. Due to the
mountains that surround the town, Sitges has its own microclimate giving 300 days of sunshine a year.
Due to its international popularity, English is widely spoken in banks, doctors’ surgeries, shops and bars.
