Tossa de Mar (32 km.)
Neolithic, Iberian and Roman enclave, Tossa de Mar proudly preserves its XII century city walls, which have seven slender circular towers used for the defence against North African pirates.
This former fishing village served as a refuge for a diverse group of artists in the interwar period. Tossa has been called “blue paradise” by Marc Chagall, one of his refugees. The municipal museum exhibits contemporary paintings and Roman archaeological remains of great interest. After the war the village became the first international resort on the Costa Brava: in fact, movie stars like Ava Gardner and James Mason in 1950 were fascinated by Tossa when they shot in this town the movie “Pandora and the Flying Dutchman”.
