Art and recycling

Today climate change is an undeniable fact and the pollution of our natural environment with waste materials generated by human beings doesn’t stop. Great part of the garbage, sadly enough ends up in the sea, becoming a worldwide problem.

Sitges ReciclArt is an event dedicated to raising environmental awareness through art: The objective is to reflect on the great quantity of trash generated by current habits of consumption, to find creative solutions for the materials we dump every day, by promoting creative recycling and more responsible consumer habits.

Welcome to Sitges

#sitgesanytime

Sitges has always been a place which has enchanted artists, tourists and visitors from all over the world. For many, the secret lies in its light and almost 300 days of sun that it enjoys every year, which attracted the painters, sculptors and writers who settled here at the end of the 19th century. Yet now it is time to look forward and Sitges in the 21st century, whilst mindful of its roots, is focused on innovation and creativity. Our wish is for Sitges to remain an attractive and seductive town.

Sitges is 300 sunny days per year, 26 beaches, 3 marinas, 5 museums, 1 nature reserve, 1 golf course, over 5,000 hotel bedspaces, Over 1,900 camping spaces, 29,000 inhabitants of 90 different nationalities
over 400 restaurants and shops, 50 events per year.
