5 4 3 2 1

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.

  4. Aiuto!!! ALBERT & TANG !! - Prinsesse K. (11 Apr 2008 - 23:06)

    Visto che c'è già un messaggio precedente simile ne approfitto! :-)
    Sono stata a Tossa De Mar in vacanza intorno al 1999 - 2000 - 2001 ( bellissimo luogo). In spiaggia ho conosciuto un signore molto simpatico francese ( non ricordo con certezza se fosse di Carcassonne) che aveva un appartamento lì e quindi trascorreva sempre le sue vacanze a Tossa. Adesso potrebbe avere intorno i 70 anni e si dovrebbe chiamare Albert.
    E poi ricordo un bravissimo ritrattista ( di cui ho ancora il mio ritratto) che disegnava nella piazza, c'era sempre moltissima folla intorno incuriositi dalla sua tecnica originale. Si chiamava Tang.
    Qualcuno può aiutarmi??
