Since 1959 Sitges has played host to this event on an annual basis. The cars that are entered date from between 1900 and 1924. Vintage cars join a rally from Barcelona to Sitges. Competitions are held for the fastest cars. But also, in true Sitges style, for the most beautiful cars and the best-dressed drivers.
Each year during the month of March, Sitges is invaded by hordes of patchwork enthusiasts. The town plays host to a conference allowing aficionados to meet fellow aficionados who can swap tips and show off their proudest works. Some of the world's best examples of patchwork are on show at the festival that takes place in various venues and tents across town.
It is worth keeping an eye on Sitges tourist information's festivities calendar for tips on what to expect.
