Enjoy the lively ambiance of Christmas in the coastal, quiet town of Sitges. You can experience a Catalan-style Christmas at the seaside of the Mediterranean. Doesn’t it sound good?
The town of Sitges, well-known for its Fantasy Film Festival and the February Carnival, celebrates Christmas to the fullest and everybody is welcome to gather this festival. The town is decorated with Christmas lights, outstanding are the lights hanging down the facade of the Townhall in Sitges.
Christmas is a time of joy and spending time with the family. Therefore, Sitges offers you lots of places and activities ideal to share these winter days with your family. For example, the Fira de Santa Llucia which starts at the first weekend of December and it is usually located in the Oasis neighborhood. Remember that you can buy your Christmas decorations in this traditional Catalan Christmas market. Your children will love going with you and walking from one stall to the other choosing the best Christmas stuff. Don’t forget your Christmas tree, a Caga-tio and a Catalan caganer! The best traditional Christmas sweets are also sold here, a real temptation for sweet-toothed kids and adults.
Another place where your children will have lots of fun is the Christmas park in Sitges. This magical park opens by 29th December until 4th January. It is located at the Pins Vens Pavillion. Workshops, games and a great bouncy castle are some of the star activities programmed to make Christmas holidays entertaining. What is more, the Christmas park will enjoy the collaboration of police officers and firefighters of Sitges who will take part in lots of Christmas activities for children to educate and make them smile. They will learn traditional Christmas carols, too! Won’t it be funny to listen to your kids singing in Catalan? Can you imagine it?
And… what about going to the beach with your children at Christmas? You can do this in Sitges, temperatures are not too cold – maybe not too high to have a swim, though.
