Enjoyable stroll to the top, not steep. Many routes available to get to lighthouse and cafe at the summit. Glorious views over the Med and Tossa itself. Would recommend, particularly after a good meal if your feeling a bit guilty about your desert😀

Tossa was interesting with a palm lined bay, like Sitges and a castle and old town at North end. Castle had several towers. As usual in January everything was closed,including the castle

A beautiful and very well preserved castle. Makes for a nice stroll and loads of great photo opportunities. Stunning views of the Costa Brava and Tossa de Mar from the top.

It is certainly worth climbing up the hill. The nearest parking at the bottom of the hill and it’s free Monday to Friday. Highly recommended coffee at the bottom of the hill.
