Itinerary

Circular itinerary along the sea-facing side of the Ardenya Cadiretes Massif until reaching Es Codolar cove located at the foot of the impressive walled enclosure of the Old Town (Vila Vella) in Tossa de Mar and passes also the Tower of Joanàs, the Villa Vella, the Castle Tower, the Tossa de Mar Lighthouse, the Torre del Codolar, the Mirador des Codolar and one can return on the Vila- Roman road to Tossa de Mar. The route runs along a stretch of coastal path affording spectacular views of one of the most emblematic Costa Brava landscapes. This path runs close to the cliffs at some points so extreme caution should be taken.

The route is the essential proposals for the town of Tossa de Mar one of the most impressive medieval testimonies that exist and is catalogued as a national historical-artistic monument. Almost all the walled perimeter built between the 12th and 14th centuries is preserved to defend the local population from pirate incursions. From the wall there are three large cylindrical defence towers and from above you expect a beautiful landscape of the bay of this very unique town on the Catalan coast.

This is not a flat round way and this route is designed for hikers and hiking enthusiasts. There is a short section where one has to pass near cliffs but the reward is spectacular panoramic views and the typically Mediterranean landscape.

Tossa is a true open-air museum, where the prehistoric remains give way to a Roman Turgia a medieval Tursa and a modern Tossa first converted into a refuge of artists and intellectuals and then on a generous host of tourists and visitors.
