We love the town of Sitges at Network Yachts Broker Barcelona. Apart from sailing and boating, we like the culture and art it has to offer, and it is a pleasure for us to share the latest information we have with you.
Normally, in summer, the port of Sitges is filled with music. Events take place outdoors and cater for every taste in music and festival. Time to party in Sitges begins, between July and August most events are free of charge including the famous “Festival Concerts de Mitjanit.
The 2019 Concerts de Mitjanit offered a full proposal with different music styles with a special tribute to all time’s best female voices.
Other festivals and events are listed below:
- The Festival of the Virgen del Carmen,
- “La Gran Noche Lírica”,
- The Sitges Big Band, short films with the collaboration of the International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia.
- Urban Art Show,
All of this was possible thanks to Sònia Felip, the Foundation of the Port of Aiguadolç. To her, culture is everyone’s heritage, and she feels it of utmost importance but also a great joy to bring it closer to the people of the port, boat owners or not.
Unfortunately, this year, the “Concerts de Mitjanit” is suspended for the first time in sixteen years due to the risk of contagion by Covid19.
The port of Sitges and its Foundation have tried to resist until the last moment to continue celebrating it for another year.
Although they are following government guidelines, the current situation seems to be aggravated, and therefore, it is better to be patient and wait for 2021. In these challenging times, they are forced to prioritize and make difficult decisions.
If you want, you can also visit the new “Library of the Port”, where people give a second life to books, which remains open all years-round.
We propose other plans at Network Yacht Broker Barcelona, fun and curious, by the new guidelines.

We look forward to answering any queries and giving you information about buying or renting a boat en Stiges with Network Yacht Broker Barcelona.
Today, in Network Yacht Broker Barcelona, we will tell you more about environmental certification. We will speak about Sitges and The Biosphere Destination.
First of all, what is the Biosphere Destination Certification?
Biosphere Destination is a voluntary and independent certification system based on sustainability and continuous improvement.
The certification is internationally recognized by the Institute of Responsible Tourism, a non-profit entity supporting UNESCO and the World Tourism Organization.
It is an excellent reference to international tourism.
Sitges, always improving its culture and environment.
The city of Sitges has successfully supered the audit, and now the new objective of Sitges is to achieve the Gold category.
Therefore, getting to the next level implies that Sitges will adhere to a certain number of companies that follow the Biosphere commitment.
At present, 15 companies have to start the process to join this 2020. The mayor of Sitges highlights that “it is one more step to be more present” and “the importance of the work between public and private companies.”
To have the Biosphere Destination Certification, Sitges should respect more than 112 objectives. The company values if tourism, social, and economic policy support the local community, improving cultural and environmental heritage. Thanks to the audit, Sitges understood his strengths and opportunities, which will establish a new plan of action for the next year.
The town hall and its advisers have created a thirty improvement list and eight strength points that need to be maintained and further improved.
The most important projects are the Sitges Online Reputation Study that includes concrete measures like a new cleaning contract, encourage the resident’s task of recovery, and maintain the raft of the “Jardines de Terramar.
Advisors of Sitges maintains constant work to improve and sustain the certification, which accredits that Stiges is a development model.
Luís Miguel García (tourism conciliar) said it is important to Sitges to have a better private sector’s involvement. However, Sitges needs to keep its position as a sustainable tourist destination of international recognition”.
At Network Yacht Broker Barcelona, we think that the best way to visit a place like Sitges, following and respecting guidelines, is to travel by boat. It permits visiting different places without taking a car o a plane, booking different hotels and many other things, as we explain on our web page.
