Definitely worth exploring if you're in the area. Pals has been restored and gives you a glimpse of how the village was and how it's now integrated into the modern era. Some great restaurants here too!

We recently hired a car whilst holidaying in Tossa and made our way here, and what a place, absolutely gorgeous. Lots of tiny streets, all with great character and shops ! The shops aren't the usual type, all quite different, select and well presented.

A very well maintained village, well worth a visit..especially at night when it is all lit up. Plenty of shops to browse around and lots of cafes and restaurants which are reasonably priced.

Having visited many medieval villages in Europe, this one was especially charming. There are several cafes in the village and several small shops, we found the prices surprisingly low. Just ensure: don't wear any high heels, unless you want to get stuck between the cobble...More

It is beautiful. It's worth spending a little time here. We were not able to see the Jewish museum-check the hours. The architecture is of course beautiful. The guy at the information kiosk when we were there did not speak English which was a problem...More

If you want it to be quieter arrive early or late / avoid weekends. No need for a guide. There is some useful TI info available about the region. It's a good idea to visit the other villages in the area too eg Sa Tuna, Begur... More
