Tossa is a typical little Catalonian village on the Mediterranean coast, mid-way between Barcelona and the French border, characterized by its privileged setting between sea and mountains. It extends a warm welcome to holidaymakers and is the ideal destination for those in search of peace and quiet. Tossa de Mar has managed to keep its historical traditions alive and has preserved traces of its history : its ancient town and chateau dating from the Middle Ages are unique on the Costa Brava. You will find a charming and incomparable atmosphere, just a short way (90km) north of Barcelona which offers cultural outings not to be missed.
The main beach « Mar Gran » runs parallel to the promenade of the ancient town and a little further on the charming creek, the « Mar Menuda », closes the bay.
Thursday is market day : fresh fruit and vegetables and local products (walnuts, olives, honey…) are on sale alongside clothes, jewellery and antiques
