Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Costa Brava / Tossa de Mar / Vila Vella (Old Town)
The only example of a fortified medieval town still standing on the Catalan coast, Vila Vella (Old Town) is full of narrow, cobbled streets. Inside its stone walls, discover a medieval hospital, remnants of a Gothic church that appear to have been built upon an earlier Romanesque church, and the municipal museum. 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. Put Vila Vella (Old Town) and other Tossa de Mar attractions into our Tossa de Mar trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
