Walking, Sitges: 7 reviews and 7 photos


The Palau Maricel was commissioned by an American millionaire who fell in love with Sitges and wanted somewhere
to stay and to assure the conservation of his art collections. Built by Miquel Utrillo (influenced by the Modernism in Catalunya), the palace is ornately decorated with capětals created by the sculptor Pere Jou, magnificent tiles and beautiful terraces. It is now a venue for concerts and meetings. It is there that tango-workshops were organised during the Sitges tango festival.
