Universe at Cosmo Caixa
Isaac Newton, 26
This permanent exhibition that was inaugurated at the CosmoCaixa in July 2019 takes you on a trip through the wonders of science, from the Big Bang to the latest frontiers of knowledge. The exhibition is divided into three sections full of interactive experiences, authentic objects, and reproductions that look so real that you’ll think they’re genuine as well. In ‘Cosmos’, you’ll learn about the evolution of the universe and matter thanks to a fog chamber where you’ll see subatomic particles.
A culinary tour of El Born – Audio voice Map Tour!

Port Aventura and Ferrari Land
What best to spend a day in one of Europe’s most iconic theme parks. While you discover the six Port Aventura’s worlds, you will therefore enjoy all their attractions, impressive rollercoasters and shows. Ferrari Land, next to Port Aventura, add more speed and leading technology if possible, to make it an unforgettable experience. Perfect places to enjoy a family day or a friend’s getaway. Located just outside Tarragona, only 50 minutes driving from Sitges. Not to be missed!
Let yourself be enchanted by the spirituality and nature of Montserrat. Only getting to the top of the mountain is already special, either if you go up with the funicular or the cable car. The visit is not only worth it because of the spectacular mountain and the Monastery, but for the Escolanía de Montserrat, a children’s chorus that makes this place magical. Besides of the cultural immersion, the surroundings are great for trekking and enjoying the views. Compulsory visit to know a piece of Catalonian history.
Vineyards and Wineries
Have you already tried Penedés wines? Once you are here you should try them, moreover visit their vineyards and wineries to know all about their traditions. Only half an hour from Sitges large options of visits can be organised, including a Mehari tour and of course a wine tasting and a picnic. Highly recommended!
Barcelona Visits and Tours
The city has so much to offer that you will regret if you don’t spend at least one full day here. Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and both Gaudí La Pedrera and Casa Batlló are the main monuments you cannot miss. Tickets are often difficult to get, we do recommend you buy them in advance – we can help you with that. Otherwise, a private tour can be organized including a visit to other Barcelona highlights like Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, Montserrat, La Barceloneta, … We are happy to give you our best recommendations to make a benefit of the visit!
Eating out in Sitges is always a pleasure and there is a huge number of restaurants to choose from. Check out our restaurant guide here for our Top 5 restaurants across 9 different meal categories from brunch to fine dining.
