Castillo de Tossa de Mar, Tossa de Mar

(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Originally constructed to spot marauders at sea, the walled medieval Castillo de Tossa de Mar now looks out over the much less menacing scene of locals and vacationers lazing on the wide beach below. This castle-cum-lighthouse on the top of Mt. Guardí dates back to the 12th century, and you can reach it via a walk or a short tram ride up the hill. Once at the castle, stand by the cannons pointing out over the cliff to imagine yourself defending the city against medieval pirates. A handful of restaurants built within old houses in the castle walls provide ideal spots for lunch.

  • Must for the traveler that stops at Tossa de Mar. They have recently improved access, as well as the railings overlooking the sea. Good views from the lighthouse

  • View all along the way and a multitude of spots photos! We went with a stroller as a boy of 2 years we accompanied and it was very difficult because the road is paved with large stones and the rather steep slope. The barriers of protection being quite wide then the toddler must be stroller to avoid any accidents, you never know. Otherwise it is a wonderful site and I recommend it if you are passing in this beautiful city

  • Superb but strollers, children below age and disabled that climbs hard by place although slopes planned instead of the stairs, cobbled streets and very narrow walkway... but it's beautiful. Across the stunning views, good restoration made of walls and buildings. Pretty coves, cliffs, beaches, tours... really a detour to make absolutely. To close, return to sant Feliu by the coast road, breathtaking (attention to bikes their training ground)
