Do you know Tossa de Mar?
Located on the Costa Brava, Tossa de Mar attracts visitors with its climate, its clear waters and its golden sand. Be sure to make your way to our nearby campsites to enjoy the peace and quiet of one of the most beautiful villages in Catalonia and the surrounding area.
Fancy some relaxation, new discoveries or activities with family or friends? You’ve come to the right place! Stroll around the paved streets of the Vila Vella (“old town”), admire the castle and its fortified walls which used to protect the town from attacks by pirates. During your visit, notice a passage through the walls called Agujero del Demonio (“devil’s hole”) leading to a small idyllic cove. If you enjoy walking, set out along the “Camino de Ronda” pirates’ path, which attracts hikers from around the world, departing from the famous “Platja d’es Codolar” surrounded by huge cliffs and breath-taking landscapes. One of the town’s most beautiful beaches is Cala Giverola, the perfect place for families with crystal-clear water and a peaceful setting, but that’s not all. Several water sport activities are on offer there: you will be able to try sea kayaking along the coast and visit some stunning sites and hidden caves. If you have young children or you’re not interested in paddling, outings in glass-bottom boats are available allowing you to admire the underwater world of Tossa de Mar without getting wet.
If you enjoy cultural visits, there’s plenty for you: Tossa de Mar is packed with sites with a rich history. The municipal museum founded in 1935 in the “Vila Vella” exhibits works by artists who have spent time in the town, such as the famous painting Tossa –Blue Paradise by Marc Chagall. The town is famous for attracting artists from all over the world.
Did you know?
The American actress Ava Gardner succumbed to the charms of Tossa de Mar when, in 1951, she played the role of Pandora Reynolds in the film of the same name. It led to a long love story between Spain and the actress who spent a few years living in Madrid. The memory of Ava Gardner has never been forgotten and for good reason; a bronze statue paying tribute to her overlooks “Platja Gran”, the main beach in “Vila Vella” with a panoramic view.
Tossa de Mar is the last medieval town on the Costa Brava and is surrounded by a huge wall and seven towers which used to protect the villagers from constant attacks by pirates. Today, Tossa de Mar is one of the most popular spots on the Costa Brava.
