The sky over Sitges came to life this weekend as the annual Santa Tecla Festival took place with a stunning firework display on the paseo.
The Santa Tecla Fireworks were spectacular this year. It is one of our favourite events and takes place each September.
Santa Tecla is the town’s second big fiesta (after Fiesta Mayor) and celebrates another of the town’s patron saints.
Santa Tecla is one of Sitges most popular events. Although smaller than Fiesta Mayor, the event still has several large processions through the streets of Sitges.
The festival culminates in a stunning fireworks display over the beaches of Sitges on the 22nd of September.
The fireworks take place at 11pm. Get your space early, or book a Sitges Seafront Apartment for the best view.
Sitges said goodbye to September and the start of a more tranquil phase in town with the Santa Tecla Fireworks.
This time, the weather was perfect and the Fireworks were mesmerising.
Santa Tecla is one of the final big festivals of the Summer Season in Sitges.
Our next big event is the Sitges Film Festival and the crazy Zombie walk taking place in October.
In the mean time, the town is working on a full program of events for 2011..with some special events planned to mark the arrival of the Spring Season in 2011.. and of course the Pride festivities! Watch this space for details.
The “Nit de Focs” was one of those up-close-and-personal nights with the dragon and beasts of Sitges! Using the Paseo was definitely a good idea for this event as it really showed off just how crazy the fireworks can be.
And its easier to run out of their way when compared to running down the streets of the old town!
Enjoy your Santa Tecla Festivities and don’t forget the fireworks display on Wed night from 11pm.
