Overview
More
The Maricel Palace is one of the most emblematic buildings in Sitges. Forming part of Maricel's artistic ensemble, also receives the name of Maricel de Terra as a differentiation from the museum also known as Maricel de Mar. The Gold Room, the Blue Room, the Chapel Room, the Ship's Room, Terraces or the Cloister, enjoying a splendid view over the Mediterranean, are the main areas that make up the Palace. With a markedly "Noucentista" style, the different rooms are distinguished by a unique decor stressing its character. The Palau currently has a triple function: firstly, as a place that holds very important institutional and cultural events of the utmost importance in the civic and cultural life of Sitges, such as concerts, lectures or presentations. Secondly, some of the areas host events of organizations and companies that rent its use, as well as civil marriages. And finally, rooms, terrace and cloisters are accessible by Guided Tours that Museums of Sitges organize every Sunday.

I wasn't sure I wanted to go in here but I'm certainly glad I did. The outside is all plain masonry but the inside is a riot of colors and textures and patterns made almost exclusively with antique items sourced in Spain around 1900. Some...More

If you will be in Sitges for the weekend check out the tours in English. Buildings are incredible the artwork less so. But well worth a visit.
