Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice castle with a great old town next to it to walk around in. The main city is ok but this area is really nice.
  • Worth watching it! Nice panorama, fresh air.
  • Breathtaking, impressive… a must seen spot...
  • Beautiful place
  • 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.
