Vila Vella (Old Town), Tossa de Mar

The only example of a fortified medieval town still standing on the Catalan coast, Vila Vella (Old Town) is full of narrow, cobbled streets. Inside its stone walls, discover a medieval hospital, remnants of a Gothic church that appear to have been built upon an earlier Romanesque church, and the municipal museum. Walk up to its highest point, where the lighthouse stands, and appreciate the broad views of the town and coast. A steep climb up is required to reach the site on foot, or you can take the small tourist train up to the top. Enjoy Catalan food in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

  • In the year 2016 on the Internet saw this wonderful place and just fell in love with the views of the Castle. And here in August 2018 year it was decided to visit Tossa de Mar on wedding anniversary. Had a rest with the husband in late August 2018. The weather was wonderful, cold began to our departure, a couple of times was raining and in the last morning even had to wear jeans, but in general all the days were hot. And bright))). It's love at first sight. NET, azure, transparent. Very beautiful. In General, the Central beach of Tossa just wonderful. View of the castle's crazy. Very romantic place. Day and night cannot see! The town is very small, but we always had things to do. Beach day. Evening walks around the Castle and the old town. View from the fortress is simply stunning. When you go inside it, then the feeling that you got in the era of Romeo and Juliet ... I was immediately reminded of the movie "letters to Juliet". Very nice to wander through the streets of the old city, many restaurants and shops, the prices are reasonable. We were very pleased with our holiday! I want to return to Tossa yet again! P.s. we're not clubbers, love more soulful relaxation. Lovers of nightlife does not exactly here))
