We are going to recommend you our particular list of iconic buildings, time tunnels through architecture, created by eminent artists of other centuries: construction, painting, goldsmith, forging, glass… How can you miss this tourist route?

 

The unique buildings of Sitges.

Within Sitges we find buildings, spaces, monumental complexes, palaces and residences of different architectural styles, but the main and predominant one is modernism. The artistic heritage flourished in the nineteenth century with the Luminist school (the so-called artists of light), which drew the beautiful urban landscape that we see today….

 

Church of San Bartolomé and Santa Tecla
Plaza del Ayuntamiento 20, 08870 Sitges

This church is a baroque style parish dating from the seventeenth century. It is a central building, with an asymmetrical silhouette, with three naves with a semicircular vault. It is possibly the most photographed and iconic construction in Sitges.
