Sitges Fiesta: Flames, Dance and a Human Pyramid

Sitges Fiesta: Flames, Dance and a Human Pyramid

Sitges Fiesta Mayor is the a three day celebration that takes over the streets and waterfront of the popular Sitges beachside resort. In honour of the patron Saint, Saint Bartolomeu this small town comes to life with sardane dancers, dragon parades and world class fireworks. Don’t travel Spain and follow the Spanish summer festivals without missing the fun and energy at Sitges.



When is Sitges Fiesta

Held every year on the third week of August 40km south of Barcelona.


How to get to Sitges.

Trains run to Sitges every 20minutes from Barcelona’s Sants railway station / Estacio de Sants and take between 30 minutes and 1 hour. This is the most convenient form of transport.


From Barcelona’s airport you can catch a bus directly to Sitges. Alternatively take a train to El Prat de Llobregat station which connects to Sitges. A taxi from Barcelona to Sitges costs 75 Euro. For more in depth travel advice I recommend you review the Barcelona tourist Guide.
