The pristine, fine white sand of the Sitges beach is elbow-to-elbow with sun-worshippers April–September. The eastern end of the strand is dominated by an alabaster statue of the 16th-century painter El Greco, usually associated with Toledo, where he spent most of his professional career. The artist Santiago Rusiñol is responsible for this surprise; he was such a Greco fan that he not only installed two of his paintings in his Museu Cau Ferrat but also had this sculpture planted on the beach.
