Castillo de Tossa de Mar, Tossa de Mar

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • If you go to Tossa de Mar don't visit it. Essential with nice pictures and nice walks inside.

  • The castle of Tossa we loved, in general the entire village of Tossa, is worth a stop there for a few days. We got to the castle in the train because we are not much walking, and do not repent, we save ourselves a good walk, for who likes and is precious to the road. The views from the top are spectacular, it is a must-see.

  • Worth watching it! Nice panorama, fresh air.
  • Breathtaking, impressive… a must seen spot...
  • We had a good time, take this. There is something to see. Possible stock water and rations. Getting on a boat for about two hours, very long and tiring. If there is a possibility to rent a car, the cost is cheaper and more comfortable, no attachment to the scheduled water transport. At the foot of the old town you can run around for half an hour, architecture, like everywhere. In stores only trinkets to tourists, quality-0. Don't waste time, inspect the fortress. Toilets are located at the bottom, near the beach and the restaurant at the top near the Museum.

  • Go step in Girona and not to visit the small and adorable Tossa is all a sin
