Getting around in Sitges & Barcelona
If you have decided against hiring a car or you want to leave the car at the villa, our firstname.lastname@example.org will be delighted to organize your transfers to and from the airport/train station. For local trips please see taxi numbers below.
Remember we can also organize some bicycles or indeed electric bicycles to have at the villa too for an easy ride into town. Just let us know and we will have them at the villa when you arrive or delivered during your stay.
We have also provided this handy guide if you are travelling to Barcelona during your stay. This guide will help you plan your trip whether you are driving, getting the bus or train, and or if you decide to stay late into the night.
Parking in Sitges
Parking in Sitges during the high season can be tricky. Remember that the blue areas require a ticket always until 20.00 in most areas and until 22.00 beside the Fragata beach. The hours of 14.00 – 16.00 are free everywhere except beside the Fragata beach.
We recommend downloading the BLINKAY APP for easy parking payment and time extensions.
Free parking is difficult to get unless you park a little outside the town. There is a free municipal car park by La Plana. However, given the heat and for the added security we recommend leaving your car in a secure car park either at Avenida Sofia, Plaza de Espana, Mercadona Shopping centre (some free hours when you do your shopping here) and at Jornet car park at the top of C/Fransesc.
Local Taxi Services
Local taxis are clean and usually reliable. However, in high season it is well advised to give your taxi about 30-60 minutes’ notice as the queues can be significant especially if there is a local fiesta or at the weekend.
You should book in advance and again advisable to re-confirm on the day or day before travel. If you wish to have the comfort of air-conditioned transfers for your trip and want 100% reliability for pick up we would always recommend booking a transfer through our email@example.com service.

Dressing and customs around Sitges
In general, Sitges is very liberal in terms of dress code and customs, and nowhere is this more obvious than on the beaches and on the streets. Nevertheless, locals do like people to wear clothes when entering shops, bars, and restaurants. Not everybody does this and while some visitors think it’s great to walk around shirtless and donning a bathing suit only, locals would prefer to keep nudity and partial nudity to the beaches.
