The walled medieval Vila Vella of Tossa is like an open air museum and a treasure trove of boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants serving up fantastic local dishes - a cuisine mainly based on fish given Tossa's heritage as a fishing village. The narrow alleyways are intriguing and one of the classic routes is a stroll up to Tossa’s Lighthouse on the Cape.
After dinner, the evenings can be as relaxed or lively as you want them to be - a stroll along the promenade, exploring the old town or listening to some street music at one of the tapas bars - something for all tastes.
