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.

  • Symbol of the town of Tossa dominates the village from above; small but very nice at night is lit up and more impressive than the eye.
