(4.9/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
The only example of a fortified medieval town still standing on the Catalan coast, Vila Vella (Old Town) is full of narrow, cobbled streets.

Walk up to its highest point, where the lighthouse stands, and appreciate the broad views of the town and coast. A steep climb up is required to reach the site on foot, or you can take the small tourist train up to the top. Enjoy Catalan food in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

  • Took the high speed Renfre Train from Barcelona Sants,Station.......a 37min ride. The old town with its narrow cobblestone streets and many churches and museums was very interesting and fascinating......  more »
  • The alleys of Tossa are picturesque and surprise at every turn. A must visit the village which is very beautiful, very clean and worth stopping to discover bed and breakfast, hotels or restaurants.
