Like most other things, the Houses in Sitges are truly spectacular. Its no wonder so many gay men want to make Sitges their second home. This tour takes you through scenic routes to see the architectural gems from the times of the Americanos, Sitges residents who, between the late 18th century and the 1930’s, immigrated to Cuba in search of fortune and who, returning to their village, invested a large part of their savings in constructing buildings and mansions. The houses by the oceanfront are more reminiscent of the mansions of old Cuba or new Miami than of Spain.
It is truly breathtaking to take in the Mediterranean ocean on one side and these beautiful houses on the other
…..not to mention all the fine gay men on the beach!
This route consists of about 80 different buildings and monuments created during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They are Americano buildings that belonged to traders from Sitges, and the first examples of summer homes built in the Terramar garden city. The different styles that went into building them (neoclassicism, Romantic, eclecticism, modernism and noucentismo) represent different stages that set the town apart.
