Sitges is a popular destination for the gay traveller. It is often said that Sitges is one of the gay capitals of Europe. By day there is an open and friendly atmosphere, with gay couples at ease to be intimate and affectionate, and at night there is a large scene of gay clubs and bars. One of the highlights of Sitges' calender year is carnival in February.

M y brother-in-law was the first one to tell me about Sitges. He'd been there with his boyfriend and thought my wife and I would like it. My wife, Sophie, was pregnant and we both needed a holiday but we were hardly in the mood for raucous nightlife — gay or straight.
Sitges is a small town 35 km south-western of Barcelona. In the late 19th century Sitges started to become a mecca for artists and a center for Modernist and post Art Nouveau architects. During the s under the conservative dictatorship of Franco it became a center for the counterculture in Spain. Nowadays, Sitges' economy is based mainly on upscale tourism, business meetings and conferences. Unlike most other coasts in Spain which were taken over by cheap mass tourism in the s and s, Sitges fortunately preserved its special atmosphere of a charming and pleasant but also more expensive place to relax and have fun.
