TOSSA DE MAR


The town of Tossa is like a big open-air museum. Its prehistoric origins later became Roman Turissa, medieval Tursa and now modern Tossa, a one-time retreat for artists and intellectuals and now a pleasing resort hosting tourists and visitors.

MARIMURTRA BOTANIC GARDENS


Located in Blanes, just 18 km south of Tossa, it is one of the most beautiful gardens on the shore of the Mediterranean. Definitely worth a visit.

This is the true archaeological park on the Costa Brava, one of the best historical destinations of Catalonia. Two cities, one Greek and one Roman, located next to the sea in L’Escala, 78 km north of Tossa de Mar, and according to UNESCO, one of the most interesting archaeological sites in the world.

GIRONA


Visit the lovely city of Girona, with its medieval Jewish quarter, the “Call”, the Old Town, the cathedral and its museums and churches, with the River Ongar running through the centre.

THE SALVADOR DALI TRIANGLE


The Dalí Triangle is a route that links the three hubs of the Empordà that allow in-depth knowledge of Salvador Dalí, both biographical and artistic. The itinerary begins in the hometown of the genius, Figueres, at the Dali Theatre-Museum; continues in Cadaqués, specifically in the small fishing village of Portlligat, home to the Salvador Dalí House-Museum and ends at the end of the Pera, where Pubol Castle rises.

BARCELONA


Barcelona is within 100 km of Tossa de Mar – we recommend spending at least a day to enjoy the great Mediterranean capital with its famous Gothic Quarter, modernist route and many other attractions and places to visit.
