Furthermore, its location is perfect: close to the beach with beautiful views of the Catalan coastline.

What is Calle del Pecado, and why is it so famous?

The popularity of Calle del Pecado in Sitges is more than evident. Also known as Calle 1 de Mayo, it's the area with the most famous bars, restaurants, and nightlife in Sitges.

Additionally, it's also the perfect destination for those who want to enjoy a good local cuisine menu.

Why is it called "Calle del Pecado"?

The origin of its name is not as morbid as one might imagine. Although the name evokes the red-light district of Amsterdam, where "sins" are displayed in shop windows, or the Montmartre district of Paris, where the famous Moulin Rouge is located, this street was a reference for Catalan nightlife in 1956.

It is said that Miquel Utrillo and Antonio Morató were singing in the street when they were reprimanded by the authorities. In response, the painter and artistic promoter asked if singing was a sin. As a result of this incident, the name has persisted to this day.
