Tossa is very proud of the history and the culture of the town and there is so much to see and do in the area. The most obvious evidence of the history is the Vila Vella (Castle) which dates from before the 12th century although...More

Narrow streets, some cobbled. Loads of fashion shops, small eateries and loads of charm. We really enjoyed shopping there and you can get a bargain. I'd think there's something for everyone in this area. Though probably not great for the "clubbing" age group. This is...More

It is an absolutely beautiful little town and one of the best old villages we visited. Lovely to stroll around and lots of interesting little ships to visit and a wide variety of restaurants available. Definitely a must visit.

Cute little old town by the sea. We visited it after main season so it was not very crowded but locals told us that summer could get crazy. Beautiful rocky view on the sea.

There always seems to be a surprise round every bend. That might be a bar, restaurant or hotel! Some steeper slopes but not too severe. You can explore on your way to the castle or on your way back. Several varied options. Just enjoy the...More

The oldest part of Tossa, right between two beaches and by the castle. An assortment of cafes and shops. Quite picturesque.

I would say quite a lot of the area could be assessable as the streets are certainly wide enough for a wheelchair, but you might need someone with some strength to push the chair as parts of it are very hilly.
