Sunny Sitges, Spain is considered Europe's gay capital and if you want a great deal, StaySitges is ready to offer it. The lesbian owned company specializes in luxury apartment and villa holiday accommodation, and 90% of the properties are owned by gay men. With resorts that boast a breathtaking landscape that stretches along four kilometers of seventeen golden beaches, a busy cultural life throughout the year and a full festive calendar, Sitges is a cultural oasis.
This Spanish coastal resort, located only a half-hour's train ride from Barcelona, is the perfect gay tourist town with lots of bars, clubs and restaurants. Like the Mardi Gras of New Orleans and the Carnivale of Venice, Sitges also hosts a fantastic, outrageous, carnival in February. There are folk dances, floats fill the streets, and the Debauchery Parade and Extermination Parade pass thousands of onlookers. Throughout the year there are many other memorable events, and with museums, the Marciel Palace and the parish church, the city is also rich in history.
