Chenoa is performing in Sitges at the Teatre Prado

Spanish singing sensation Chenoa will be performing April 5th at 2100h at El Teatro Prado (Downtown Sitges). The Majorcan native made it big off the tv series Operacion triumfo (spanish x-factor), and flew up the spanish pop charts! Since 2002 Chenoa has sold over 2 million records.

She will be promoting her new album Otra Direccion which the teatro prado is a great setting for the artist.

This is the true Costa Barcelona

Along the Spanish coast there are many coastal names from; Costa Dorada, Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, etc, but I agree that instead of calling Sitges within the Garraf coast, the government is going to start calling the local coast ‘Costa Barcelona‘. The reason the government did this is that more people know Barcelona, than even possibly Catalonia, thus, I think it is wise to call the coast near to Barcelona; Costa Barcelona, so that tourists can relate to where in fact are places like Sitges.

costa-barcelona-sitgesOver the 100km stretch of coastline from Maresme (north of Barcelona, along the coast  to Vilanova I La Geltru, there are national parks, never-ending beaches, and loads to do from renting a yacht, or maybe going on a wine tour in El Penedes wine region.

Either way it’s very convenient to stay within the Costa Barcelona area because it is always within 30-45mins from Barcelona, which is great for taking advantage of all the sights and sounds of BCN.

Hopefully the Costa Barcelona name will catch on worldwide because as it stands, Sitges still has a bit to do on the world stage, yes it’s only a small village, but it does pack a big punch!

- It’s mushroom season in Catalunya –

Have you ever been in Sitges or Barcelona in October, and noticed all of the wild mushrooms in the produce stores? If you have been here, you know what I’m talking about, a plethora of different type of mushrooms, big and small. In Sitges the produce store on Calle Rusinol always has a great selection, or the farmers market above Mercadona. In Barcelona the best place to go is BOLETS PETRAS in La Boqueria, their selection is imense and some say that this stall is the mecca for all that want to know about Bolets (wild mushrooms).

Every October through til December, a weekend past time for many Catalans is wild mushroom picking. Throughout Catalunya one can go up into the hills with his/her wicker basket and find some true delights. However, picker beware, although there are 2000 species of mushrooms in Spain, only 175 types can be safely eaten, and each year half a dozen or so die from not knowing the correct species. Most of the die-hard BOLETEAIRES (mushroom pickers) go as far into the hills as the Pyrenees mountains, whereas we a Sitges Holiday Accommodation prefer somewhere a little closer ie. Montseny or the Penedes region.

If you’re here on vacation and want to go on a guided tour the sitges tourism office will be able to point you in the right direction for a professional guide.

Even Shakira & Pique love to go picking!
