The ‘Vila del Llibre’ Festival returns to Sitges on 2-3 April

The ‘Vila del Libre’ book festival returns to Sitges on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April, to be held on the Paseo Marítimo near the Hotel Terramar again, and as a prelude to the Diada de Sant Jordi (St. George’s Day).

This will be the second time that Sitges hosts the event, which began last year in the middle of the local area confinement, but which was still well received by its attendees despite the Covid restrictions.

The festival that also takes place in seven other towns across Spain, aims to bring literature closer to the public from the perspective of cultural tourism, and promotes books from mainly independent publishers.

This year the Terramar will again become the epicentre of the festival in Sitges. Although the end of the Passeig Marítim is far away for many local residents, the manager of the festival, Jordi Barrachina, has said that this year they will be making improvements to facilitate access to the festival from the centre of the town with the ‘tourist train’ that runs along the promenade. They also aim to make the area more attractive with food stalls and more events.

The 2022 edition will explore the development of Sitges in the 1960s. During this time, said Barrachina, Sitges was only just being defined as an international tourist destination, at the same time as the emergence of initiatives such as the car rally and discussions on the construction of the new Port, which would become Aiguadolç.
