Tossa de Mar

Tossa de Mar is a resort on the Costa Brava in Catalunya. The town is located at 95 kilometers north of Barcelona. Tossa de Mar is not far from the popular tourist town Lloret de Mar, but it is less touristic and therefore more Spanish oriented. In 1989 Tossa de Mar was the first place in the world considering itself anti-bullfighting.

Tossa de Mar has a coastline of 13 kilometers where everyone can find his way of relaxing. Platja Gran is the main beach and is located on a horseshoe-shaped bay dominated by ancient watchtowers. The beach has its blue flag for its safety and cleanliness. There are toilets, showers, first aid huts, parasols and sun beds. Water sports are waterskiing, parasailing, kayaking and pedal boats. Boat trips take you along the coast and catamarans take you out to sea for a peep underwater.

Vila Vella is the only example of a fortified medieval town on the Catalan coast. Built late 14th century is still standing proudly with fortified walls, towers and parapets. Vila Vella is a national historic monument.

The old town is an interesting place with narrow cobbled streets. You will find a medieval hospital, the remains of a Romanesque church and the Municipal Museum.

The Municipal Museum built in Gothic style, is located in the Governors house. The museum has a collection of contemporary art by Spanish and foreign artists. In the archaeological section are artifacts from the Paleolithic period to the late Middle Ages. Particularly noteworthy are the mosaics found in the atrium of the Roman villa Ametllers.

In the center of Tossa de Mar there are also cozy shopping streets and typical Spanish restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious meal while taking in the real Spanish atmosphere. If you like to go out during the night there are numerous bars, cafes and nightclubs for your entertainment.
