Discovering Tossa de Mar

It is not important if you try to find Turissa, the Iberian Tossa, the medieval fortress of the Vila Vella The Old Town of Tossa or today's Tossa de Mar, you will always be in the middle of an attractive natural area, the Selva (wild area, forest) which offers an additional richness, apart from the often over-populated beaches, Playa Grande Big Beach Playa Grande (Platja gran in Catalan), Playa de Mar Menuda Beach Mar Menuda (Platja de la Mar Menuda in the language of the catalan people) or Platja d'Es Codolar Beach the Codolar (Playa El Codolar), the old fisher port of Tossa.
 
Even if you do not find any longer Tossa de Mar that Ava Gardner saw in 1950 when she discovered Tossa de Mar to play the principal part of Pandora there, this small city did not lose anything of its fascination until today.
 
Even if the vineyards have disappeared and only few fishermen earn today their living exclusively from the sea, the atmosphere of Tossa seduces each visitor. You'll discover in nearly every street of Tossa art and art-craft Art and crafts in Tossa which already presents an 80-year-old history.
 
This is why you can wonder why the majority of Tossa's visitors make their stays only to "holidays on the beach", a kind of longer siesta. We have the Mediterranean plants Mediterranean Plants in Tossa's surroundings to our feets, more than 100 species of medicinal herbs to discover and the environment of Tossa de Mar offers an ecological system which is almost lost elsewhere. Even the light of Tossa enchanted Marc Chagall, like other painters, when he stayed in the Catalan town. Why not join, for exemple by a hiking trip Hiking in Tossa's surroundings, the useful to the pleasant. A few hours of a stay are enough to discover the other Tossa which you will never forget.
 
And, perhaps, some more information awaits you which many prospectuses forget to name: Tossa de Mar is not in Spain but in Catalonia which once was an important kingdom. Thanks to our guidance you discover not only the history of Tossa The history of Tossa de Mar but also the other face of Catalonia: its history, its art, its monuments, its literature, its music, its art of cooking and its own language The Catalan language which persisted for many years only in secrecy and is now home again in every Catalan school.
 
Only few visitors of Tossa de Mar know that the Catalan town looks back at traditions and customs Traditions and Customs which was born hundreds of years ago but stay alive until our days. Most of these events and festivities are not directed to tourists and the dates don't fit in the summer plans of visitors either. That's why some of the feasts and event are only celebrated by the inhabitants of Tossa.
