The town has an impressive collection of Art Nouveau mansions, many built by Sitges residents who emigrated to America in the 19th century to seek their fortunes and came home to enjoy their success. "Los Americanos" hired architects to build large residences in Modernist through Noucentista (post-Art Nouveau) styles. An Art Nouveau walking tour can begin with the Modernistic train station and continue down Calle Illa de Cuba and Calle Francesc Gumà. At the Cap de la Villa Square, Bartomeu Carbonnel Mussons, an "American" textile importer, commissioned his dream home in 1913. The former town market on Town Hall Square was the first modernist building in the village.
