Palau de Maricel
The Maricel Palace is one of the most emblematic buildings in Sitges. Forming part of Maricel's artistic ensemble, also receives the name of Maricel de Terra as a differentiation from the museum also known as Maricel de Mar.
The Gold Room, the Blue Room, the Chapel Room, the Ship's Room, Terraces or the Cloister, enjoying a splendid view over the Mediterranean, are the main areas that make up the Palace. With a markedly "Noucentista" style, the different rooms are distinguished by a unique decor stressing its character.
The Palau currently has a triple function: firstly, as a place that holds very important institutional and cultural events of the utmost importance in the civic and cultural life of Sitges, such as concerts, lectures or presentations. Secondly, some of the areas host events of organizations and companies that rent its use, as well as civil marriages. And finally, rooms, terrace and cloisters are accessible by Guided that Museums of Sitges organize. During summer months, the program of visits extends to include castanet concerts and dinners under a full moon on their magnificent terraces.
The majestic Gold Room is the space used by Museums of Sitges to organize different academic sessions, such as the seminar about the Art Market, Collections and Museums, the Day of Archaeology of Sitges and the International Symposium on Noucentisme. This same area has witnessed a long list of significant social and cultural events, such as the Meeting of Catalan and Spanish Intellectuals promoted by the Catalan Government in 1981 and various courses of the University Menéndez Pelayo, among many others.
