Montserrat & Sitges
Montserrat & Sitges is a full day tour to enjoy the inland and sea landscapes of Catalunya.
Montserrat is a very important site for the Catalan people and has been one of the favorite landscapes of painters for centuries. Even some of the most important architects of the 19th and 20th century have left their footprint in Montserrat like Gaudí, Domenech i Muntaner and Puig i Cadafalch.
There’s a fascinating Art Museum in Montserrat with a wide range of paintings, including works by Ramon Casas and Santiago Rusiñol, two of the best-known Modernists. Benedictine monks believe that art and its beauty helps to stay close to God.
So after visiting Montserrat we’ll head towards Sitges to enjoy lunch at some of the restaurants by the sea. During the summer, we recommend starting at Sitges and going to Montserrat afterward, and in winter, visiting the other way around.
One of the most important modernist style painters, Rusiñol, used to have a summer house in Sitges, the Cau Ferrat Museum, a really interesting Museum with a wide range of medieval and modern art, that is finally open again to visitors, after a long and extensive renovation. We can say without a doubt, that it was worth waiting all these years, it looks fantastic right now. We can also enjoy the old part of Sitges on a leisurely walking tour. Did you know that Facundo Bacardi was born in Sitges? and this is not the only relation in between Sitges and Cuba, there’s much more, room, havaneres (popular songs from Catalunya) and Chiringuitos keep this two places closer than you might imagine.
