La Vila Vella

The Vila Vella of Tossa de Mar is an imposing walled enclosure built between the 12th and 14th centuries as a defence against pirate raids. This fortification preserves its original perimeter and has been declared a National Historic and Artistic Monument.

The interior of the Vila Vella is a must-see during your stay in Tossa de Mar. It is formed by a group of narrow streets made of pebbles and flanked by charming buildings. Dominating the view of the sea there is the Sant Vicenç old church, a 15th century Gothic-style building, and at the highest point is the Tossa lighthouse, built on top of the old castle that dominated the territory.
