  • We also attended a concert of 1 hour opera mini in a Hall of the Museum with 1 cup of cava offered, all for only 12 euros. It was very nice, the singers were excellent.

  • Highly recommended visit in a unique space in Sitges, very nice view and a collection of Romanesque to 20th-very interesting. Price 10 euros, a bit expensive.

  • Watched a piano concerto here. Lovely venue, quaint little museum shop and gorgeous view of the Med.
  • It is the iconic landmark building in Stiges. I love to have morning run and meditation around here.
  • Interesting history of Sitges
  • This is a lovely place. But it is closed on Mondays
  • Confused, muddled exhibition, but some hidden gems. Worth persevering.
