Overview

The Maricel Museum exhibits a complete artistic route from the tenth century to realism and figuration during the first half of the twentieth century, passing through the art collections of Dr. Jesus Perez Rosales and the Collection of Sitges, with works of great quality. The museum exhibition integrates multiple languages, techniques and artistic media in order to achieve a maximum consistency in the chronological sequence of the development of the arts. The museum included works from the collection of Dr. Jesus Perez-Rosales that never had been exhibited in public, acquisitions by the Sitges Heritage Association since 2012 (Ramon Casas, Miquel Utrillo, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Artur Carbonell i Augusti Ferrer Pino) ​​and donations from artist’s relatives (Pere Jou and Alfred Sisquella).The museum's own collection was complemented with several works from loans and deposits from art collections of the Government of Catalonia, the Museum of the Provincial Government of Barcelona.

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

We joined a guided tour of this art gallery and museum, and were delighted by the collection of art there, and the guide was very helpful. The tour concluded with a castanet performance by 2 ladies, which was quite a revelation, with cava :o)

This location is on a cliff over looking the sea. The view of the Town of Sitges is good from here to the west, east and on the upper town. Good safe walking path and stairs.

You get one (quite pricey) ticket for Museu Maricel and Museu Cau Ferrat so they shouldn't really have separate entries. This refurbished museum is going for European museum of the year. I'm afraid it won't win - it's far short of the superb CosmoCaixa in...More
