Tossa de Mar, Catalonia, Spain
Info. The medieval walled town in Tossa de Mar, Catalonia, Spain
We’re visiting the seaside resort of Tossa de Mar on Spain’s Costa Brava, located between the city of Barcelona and the French border. Our view from the beach shows us the walled enclosure of Vila Vella – Tossa de Mar's Old Town. It is the only example of a fortified medieval town still standing on the Catalan coast. The town was walled off in the 12th century and a castle was built above the surrounding area.
