This square is an old witness from the Spanish Civil war in 1936. You can still imagine the hard bombings when you look at the church there. Do you know the movie "The Perfume"? Scenes were made there

Hidden secret in the middle of tourist panic. Deep thoughts as you look at the church wall riddled with execution bullet holes.

In my opinion, one of the most interesting spots of the ancient city. It has impressive bomb damage (from war) on the church wall. The spot was also part of The Perfume film

Don't miss the beauty of such a Natural Park, we can also guide you to visiting a farm house for bio products where kids if any, would have a joyful day with pets ;-)

The house is in the park area. Great for trekking, BTT, jogging and exploring the area. Extraordinary for birdwatching. Wild boards and foxes are frequent in the property (not agressive)

Walk up the mountain of Levantina to get to the hike trail I love to walk with my dogs. You get incredible views of Sitges and the ocean.
