Sitges in the times of Modernisme
Sitges and Cau Ferrat – Modernista painter and writer Santiago Rusiñol’s home-cum-workshop – were, one hundred years ago, a meeting place for intellectuals and artists who, through Modernisme, opened Catalonia up to the most innovative trends of the day.
Cau Ferrat is a synthesis of that total art defended by the modernistes: painting, music, decorative arts and literature.
A guided tour to discover the colonial-style homes built in the late 19th century by Sitgetans who left to make their fortune in America. The return of those who were successful in their overseas adventure strongly marked their hometowns.
A tour of a more intimate Sitges, from the center of town to the old cemetery, where you can enjoy commemorative sculptures of great artistic importance from the late 19th and early 20th centuries: works by Josep Llimona, Frederic Marés, Manel Fuxà, Agatip Vallmitjana, among others make up this artistic ensemble where the Americanos were buried.
Old Quarter Route
To discover Sitges’ origins we must take a walk around its old quarter. You’ll discover remains of ancient ramparts, the Racó de la Calma (Quiet Corner), the old fishermen’s homes, the cannon, plus you can visit Sitges’ different museums: Cau Ferrat Museum, Maricel Museum and Palau Maricel.
Route of the Malmsey wine
A tour of the Sitges Sant Joan Baptista Hospital–built in 1912 by modernista architect Josep Font i Gumà- brings us closer to this institution’s history. On the hospital grounds we can find the cellar where the famous malvasia, a traditional sweet wine from Sitges and a Llopis family legacy, is made. Includes a tour of the Llopis family house and wine cellar, today the Romàntic Museum.
A tour of the Terramar area allows us to get acquainted with its history, while enjoying its architectures and Modernista Gardens.
With the support of the Town Council, in fall of 1918 an industrialist from Sabadell named Francesc Armengol i Duran promoted the development of Terramar, Catalonia’s first garden city project –Catalonia garden-, inaugurated on April 8th, 1933. Most of the buildings were constructed by architect Josep Mª Martino i Arroyo, and this was how Sitges became one of the main centers of Catalan noucentista architecture.
