History and description:

The town of Sitges is a traditional summer residential area. People leaving during summer in his sitgetan residences, frequently decided to built a familiar pantheon in the cemetery as a memorial of themselves and his families.
 A big variety of themes and shapes are represented in the works of various Modernist (Art Nouveau) sculptors contracted to build that sepulchers, like Josep Llimona i Bruguera (pantheon Robert Camps), Josep Reynés (pantheons Antoni Serra Ferrer and Manuel Robert Aldofeu), and Manel Fuxà (pantheons E. Carreras Robert and A. Carreras Robert).

The most interesting sepulchers sculptures showing an extreme sensibility, are a demonstration of the high level of the Catalan Art Nouveau style sculpture, and where basically built between 1900 and 1910.
