TOSSA DE MAR: A JOURNEY THROUGH OUR HISTORY
From the Palaeolithic to the 21st century, through the Roman Turissa, the medieval Tursa, the modern Tossa that was home to artists and intellectuals to the charming and touristic Tossa nowadays, you will find remains of our history all along our village, which makes Tossa a fascinating living museum: Museum of Tossa, Ametllers Roman Village, the walled Vila Vella, the Can Magí Tower, the Verge del Socors Chapel, the neoclassical church of Sant Vicenç, the Sant Miquel former Hospital, the Sant Grau Sanctuary and Casa Sans.
Tossa de Mar has kept the charm of a small seaside town, where you will find areas of great beauty in the middle of the nature, surrounded by coves and beaches in one of the most emblematic places of the Costa Brava: cliffs and lookouts form beaches and coves where to get lost and enjoy the silence and the sea.
TOSSA DE MAR ETHNOGRAPHIC MUSEUM
Can Ganga or Can Leandro is a fortified farmhouse from the 16th century, initially at first row from the sea, to defend against pirates attacks -so common at the time. It is a good example of civil and popular Gothic architecture, and it currently holds the Ethnographic Museum of Tossa de Mar.
LIGHTHOUSES INTERPRETATION CENTRE
In the Tossa de Mar Lighthouse you will find the Lighthouse Interpretation Centre, conceived to explain in an educational and sensorial way the evolution and personality of the lighthouses throughout history. A complete look -from the architecture to the emotional points of view- of a very symbolic element of the sea.
