Tossa De Mar Costa Brava

By James Purefoy Subscribe to RSS | June 9th 2012 | Views:

The coast of Brava has lots of interesting and beautiful holiday resorts offering visitors endless pleasure and fun throughout their stay here. One of the great holiday resorts you will find here is Tossa de Mar which is halfway located to french border and Barcelona. Apart from the sun and sand people come to enjoy here, there are outstanding buildings which are worth checking out while on a visit or holiday in the resort.

Vila Vella is the most outstanding and emblematic building you will find in Tossa de Mar. This medieval fortress has seven towers and it is right on the beach thereby accessing it is easy. Built back in the 12th century as a protection against attacks by the pirates, it still stands strong and actually has an art museum inside it. In the museum are well conserved sculptures and paintings from archaeological findings and they will be on display most of the times. The most outstanding works here are Serra and Chagall painting which showcase the beautiful sceneries within Tossa de Mar.

The Roman Villa ruins just near the fortress act as another attraction in the area. The ruins date back to the 4th century and are therefore a treasure to the region and visitors who love learning about the history of different parts of the world will find the ruins quite interesting.

Some of the beautiful beaches you will find here include Des Codolar on the left side of the beautiful fortress with its coarse sands and Play de Tossa believed to be the most lively and also the largest beach on the whole of Tossa de Mar. This beach adjoins beach promenade and Tossa’s old town with numerous restaurants and cafeterias. There is also Playa del Reig beach on the northern part which is a popular spot for divers. The beach has coarse sand and is quite beautiful.

One of the most amazing beaches is the Playa de la Mar Menuda which has a combination of fine and coarse sand. It is a beach with amazing views and also has interesting things one can take part in to make any holiday spent here most amazing. The la Banyera de Ses Dones, a natural pool is a very interesting spot in the region. It is on the North on a rocky region and is full of rock formations which are very beautiful.
