Tossa de Mar

Tossa de Mar is a municipality in Catalonia, Spain, located on the Costa Brava, about 103 kilometres north of Barcelona and 100 kilometres south of the French border. It is accessible through Girona Airport, some distance north.
There is ample evidence of settlements dating back to the Neolithic period, and it is believed that the area has been continuously populated since that time. Between the 4th century BC and the 1st century BC appeared the first settlementsof the Iberians, followed shortly after by the Romans in the 1st century.
In 966 Tossa was ceded by Count Miró of Barcelona to the Abbey of Ripoll. Some two centuries later, in 1187 Tossa was granted its charter by the Abbot of Ripoll, coinciding with the building of a church atop Mount Guardí, the remnants of which can still be seen today.

    Был в августе 2013 г, в этом сказочном месте,проехав всё побережье Коста Браво,поистине это самое красивое место. Обязательно поеду в Тоссу ещё раз,только буду бронировать апартаменты ,так как очень дешевые и свежие продукты в супермаркетах и цены апартаментов в разы дешевле чем отели.Рекомендую поездку июль или август,так как в другие месяцы холодная вода в море
