This Museum houses so many wonderful little treasures and extremely impressive art pieces. What I loved about this museum is that it was once the apartments of Charles Deering, now housing an extensive collection of Catalan artifacts and art.

This deals with the artist Santiago Rusiñol and his friends and circle - there are even three images by the teenage Picasso who must have visited when he was at the art school in Barcelona. The completion of the museum has been delayed for several years by financial turmoil in Spain but now that it's complete, it's a model of... More

If you ever wondered how it would be to live in Sitges in the 19th century, you should visit Museu Maricel. A fantastic opportunity to learn more about local art and styles.

A beautiful restoration that highlights a very eclectic art collection. There is a surprise around every corner. We spent a thoroughly delightful visit here after a seaside lunch. This is a relaxing day trip just a short train ride from Barcelona.

The museum is large and filled with great pieces of art in many forms (painting, sculpture, architectural features, etc.). The museum allowed visitors to photograph throughout the exhibits. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is a must visit attraction in Sitges. The views from the museum of the sea are glittering and stunning. The museum exhibits blend flawlessly into... More

An absolutely stunning museum, which is rather larger inside than it look, set on various levels, a lift provides easy access if needed. A great selection of Medieval religious pieces, the ones by Pere Serra are incredible. The Corpus Christie procession by local artist Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, and the procession of St. Bartholomew by Felip Masó are magnificent. My... More
