La Selva

La Selva

La Selva, also known as the region of waters..

La Selva is the southernmost of Girona's regions and is characterised by its abundant water resources.

 

The contrast between the salt and fresh water is at the heart of one of the region's most exceptional attractions: the Santa Clotilde, Pinya de Rosa and Marimurtra botanical gardens.

 

But one cannot leave the Selva region without first discovering the magic of the castle and the Vila Vella or old quarter of Tossa de Mar. 

 

 Our selection of places for you to visit going down the coast:

 

 

 

Tossa de Mar - Town

Tossa de Mar is a beautiful town with cobbled streets, a magnificent ancient castle and a beautiful mountainous hinterland with lush green valleys, gorges and natural springs. There's a bustling beach life in this attractive resort that appeals to couples and families rather than all night revellers.

Medieval Tossa dates back to the year 966 and in 1187 the castle was built on the headland to defend the town against sea borne invaders. Today it's invaded by foreign tourists who delight in the sense of history and wonderful views from the highest point of this ancient town.
