Cau Ferrat Museum (Museu Cau Ferrat) Tours

Don’t be fooled — the beach isn’t the only reason to make it to Sitges; in fact, it might not even be the top one. A visit to the city’s Cau Ferrat Museum will quickly prove this is to be the case given its eclectic collection of art, odds and ends that will keep your eyes dazzled for days. 

Relatively small in size, the museum’s venue was originally founded in 1893 (later opened to the public in 1933) by Santiago Rusiñol as a fisherman home-turned-home workshop. What awaits visitors now is a veritable temple of Modernisme times, which includes a seemingly never-ending collection of items ranging from ceramics to medieval doorknobs and keys, colorful tile work, artwork by Rusiñol’s contemporaries (such as Picasso), and what is said to be the world’s largest collection of wrought iron — among a lot more. Between the items on display, the historic home, and the unbeatable views of the sea, you’ll be glad you found your way to this impressive treasure in Sitges.

Practical Info

The museum is located in old town, just steps away from the Church of Sant Bartomeu and Santa Tecla. The entrance ticket includes admission to the neighboring Maricel Museum. Note that both museums are closed on Mondays, and are free to enter on the first Wednesday of each month.
