On this year, the last June 30 began a new edition of Cultural Sitgestiu, where there will be a lot of activities which have been summoned by "Museus Sitges", and will end on September 15.
This year on 2013 there has been around 100 cultural events which are focused at all ages for native Sitgetans, for foreign tourists and for domestic visitors who visit during the summer the Sitges city or our hotels.
Sitges has a great story, from the beginning it was inhabited by nomadic groups who used to be here for hunting and fishing reasons, thousands of years ago. Now Sitges has become a nice place where you can see beaches, the sun, enjoy holidays, its culture and concerts during the summer.
Did you know that Bacardí i Massó who founded the most popular rum company in the world, Bacardi, was born in Sitges, later on he will migrate to Cuba? Andrés Brugal also founded the rum company ron Brugal, which was established in Dominican Republic, hence the main characters in the world of rum were born in Sitges.
Hotel Platjador, Hotel Galeon and Hotel el Cid of Sitges, has been awarded one more year, with the "TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence". This award is given only to 10% of top performers from around the world on TripAdvisor, and is awarded to businesses that have achieved high scores continuously by travelers, which makes it more important.
"We are delighted to celebrate the success of hotels establishments around the world constantly offering from Auckland to San Francisco, from Hong Kong to Paris, an exceptional experience to TripAdvisor travelers," said Stephen Kaufer, President and CEO of TripAdvisor. "The Excellence Certificate awards best establishments the recognition they deserve, based on the comments of those who matter most to them - their customers."
"To get the annual Excellence Certificate, hotels must maintain an overall minimum score of four points (up until five) got from the opinions of TripAdvisor travelers registered in the last 12 months to be eligible for this award, any establishment in the world which meets the requirements but by receiving only a very small percentage of all businesses with profile on that portal."
