In town, you'll find an extensive selection of restaurants featuring Xató, the local signature dish. If you travel during February and March, you can also enjoy Carnaval.

Sitges Carnival attracts hordes of revellers from every corner of the globe each February, for 7 days of colourful street parades, eclectic live music and fancy-dress fun.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Sitges holiday homes

Sitges holiday rentals are in particularly high demand throughout the peak summer season of June to August, when days are typically long, dry and sunny. You may find it easier to land a good deal on accommodation by visiting in spring or autumn. Temperatures during these shoulder months are more likely to be pleasantly warm rather than sizzlingly hot, but you should still be able to get your fair share of beach time. Winters are generally mild by European standards, but you'll find the weather more conducive to bracing beach walks than swimming and sunbathing.

Natural features

Hillside hikes around Sitges

Sitges is sheltered by the gentle slopes of the Garraf mountains, resulting in a unique microclimate that often ensures warmer weather than in nearby Barcelona. The mountains themselves are the ideal spot for a scenic, gently challenging hike. Here you can explore a landscape of unspoilt scrubland, dotted with fragrant rosemary and thyme plants and Mediterranean fan palms. Tread gently, and you may catch a glimpse of darting rabbits, stately tortoises or imposing wild boars. Keep one eye on the sky, and you might also spot majestic falcons or eagles circling overhead.
