La Blanca Subur, and especially its Cau Ferrat - the home of the painter and writer Santiago Rusiñol today turned into a museum - were a hundred years ago the meeting point of intellectuals and artists, who turned the population into the spiritual capital of Catalan Modernism . Inside this museum and the Maricel Palace are characteristic exponents of that era and its total art, such as painting, music or collecting. Some of the buildings with modernist elements of Sitges are the Villa Remei, the House Bartomeu Carbonell i Mussons with its "clock tower" on the Cap de la Vila, the monument to the Greco or the House Josep Miravent i Gatell.
