Gay Guide Sitges
Sitges combines the traditional look of an old fishing village with the established charm of a smart Catalan coastal resort, designed with amazing architecture in the Modernist style. Its proximity to the city of Barcelona (30 minutes by train) and its superbly conserved townscape, compared to other resorts on the Mediterranean, meant that it was discovered early on by gay holiday-makers. In the summer and at Carnival, Sitges turns into an international gay resort, offering first class hotels, restaurants and pavement cafes to one of the most the longest established, well-heeled gay clienteles looking for a complete scene to enjoy. At weekends it's full of Barcelona's gay population. The gay beach in the centre is given over body and swimwear fashion shows, and on the outlying parts of the beach with a cruising area behind, you can do more than just look at the bodies. For honeymooners there are romantic gay guest houses set in the beautiful mountains behind the beaches.
