Castillo de Tossa de Mar, Tossa de Mar
(4.8/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • You climb to the top is rewarded with a fabtastisch view of the village and the sea. Bet you here a fot makes with the castle in the foreground and the azure blue sea behind it? And right you are because it is definitely worth it!

  • The castle is beautiful X day is ideal to visit it and see the wonderful view of tossa from the top, although it can go smoothly without stopping, has benches so people can sit and admire the landscape. But the night seen illuminated Castle is a looker, not be if there is the chance to see it X inside at night, but simply the illuminated facade leaves no one indifferent.
