Escape the Sitges sun and explore an artistic delight by visiting Museu Maricel. The museum is housed in a former seaside home that was built in the early 1900s for a wealthy American. What remains is a tribute to artistic development in Sitges and Catalonia that spans medieval art to the first half of the 20th century.
What you’ll find here is everything from paintings to sculptures and furniture, which cover artistic periods such as Romanticism, Renaissance and Baroque, Realism, Modernisme and the Luminist School. The artwork isn’t the only thing that will capture your eye, either, as it is housed in a spectacular building emblematic of Noucentisme, and which offers incredible views of the sea. Come here for the art, for the architecture, and simply to wander one of Sitges’ most rich, welcoming and intriguing connections to the past.
Maricel Museum is located in Sitges’ old quarter, just steps away from the Church of Sant Bartomeu and Santa Tecla. The entrance ticket also includes admission to the neighboring Cau Ferrat Museum. Note that both museums are closed on Mondays, and are free to enter on the first Wednesday of each month.
