We visited the old town just as a day trip, which was the perfect amount of time there, I couldn’t see us finding enough to do for any longer. We paid €7 for all day parking at P1 parking, with a 5/10 minute walk into...More

We climbed up to the ramparts and admired the view over the beach. Then we went into the little museum, which houses finds from the Roman villa in Tossa, and some paintings. There is a shop and small restaurants, all very pretty.

Well worth the walk, with hidden shops and restaurants within the walls. Green land train good if you can't walk. Great views from the top.

Great place to visit for castle lovers or for a general walk. Views are great. Exploration of the place is also entertaining. You can climb the wall or walk inside. There are few restaurants inside. During night everything is illuminated.
