Tossa de Mar
"Marc Chagall’s blue paradise"
Located on the Costa Brava, half way between the city of Barcelona and the French border, Tossa de Mar is an ancient fishermen's village with an important historical background, that has been transformed during the last 50 years into an emblematic tourist destination.
Tossa is like an open-air museum where prehistoric remains overlap with Roman Turissa, medieval Tursa and today's Tossa, one-time retreat for artists and intellectuals and now host town for tourists and visitors. Some will still remember the film ''Pandora'' with Ava Gardner which brought world-wide celebrity to this town at the time.
There is a dynamic, sporty, fun-loving, cultural, commercial and nocturnal Tossa; a festive Tossa which celebrates its fiestas and most ancient traditions and organizes concerts, balls, sardana dances, entertainment activities for children, exhibitions, fairs, painting competitions and markets.
The cuisine of Tossa is typically Mediterranean in its flavours, serving up traditional dishes that used to be cooked by fishermen on board their fishing boats, as well as now the merging of time-honoured recipes and modern creative gastronomy.OFICINA MUNICIPAL DE TURISME
