Spain solo trip: Day 3 Tossa De Mar, a beautiful medieval town

Comments 15 Standard

Day 3 of my trip was spent in the beautiful medieval town of Tossa De Mar.

Tossa de Mar’s location

Tossa De Mar is located on the coast of the Costa Brava and sits around 103 kilometres from Barcelona and only around 100 kilometres from the French border.

The beautiful town is filled with cobbled streets and is constructed around an incredibly ancient castle. Besides this, the town is surrounded by mountains and beautiful green valleys, which adds to its beauty.

A bit about the history of Tossa De Mar

The beautiful town is filled with cobbled streets and is constructed around an incredibly ancient castle. Besides this, the town is surrounded by mountains and beautiful green valleys, which adds to its beauty.

It is filled with a beautiful network of medieval paths, passageways with embedded shops and restaurants, as well as ancient houses.

This part of the old town is known as Villa Vella.

How I got here from Lloret De Mar

I took the bus from the main bus station in Lloret De Mar. The journey took around 40 minutes, and it cost €8.20 for a return ticket.

On arrival in Tossa de Mar

I strolled through the beautiful, quaint streets and did a spot of shopping until I reached one of the towers and started the elevated walk.

From here, I walked along the castle walls.

Tossa De Mar Lighthouse

After walking along the castle walls, I made my way up to the lighthouse.

The lighthouse was built in 1917 and sits at the highest point of Tossa de Mar. It is the headquarters for the Maritime Museum, where people can learn all about the evolution of lighthouses in the Mediterranean Sea.

The views approaching the lighthouse are stunning!

After the lighthouse visit, I made my way back down towards the beach, where I ate at a lovely beachfront restaurant called Da Giovanni. I would highly recommend it. It is very reasonably priced and has nice, friendly staff.

I spent the perfect end to my day trip with an hour at the beach overlooking the castle.

I hope you have enjoyed my blog today.

Thanks for visiting

Stay blessed 🙏🏾

  1. Wow, such a charming little place! Although nowhere near it, Tossa de Mar’s architecture resembles a lot like that in Valldemossa. It appears you had a wonderful time exploring all over Tossa, and I’m adding it to my bucket list of places to visit in Spain one day!
