Over 50s Holiday packages to Spain
Our over 50s holiday package deals have always been a popular choice. In this blog post, we discuss a destination which is growing in popularity among our mature customer. Here are our favourite parts of Tossa de Mar…
Tossa de Mar:
Tossa de Mar is located half way between Barcelona and the French border. As an ancient fisherman’s village, it is steeped in a rich historical background. It is a quaint catalan-esque place with beautiful cobblestone streets. The last fifty years have seen Tossa de Mar being transformed into a popular tourist destination. From landscape and beaches to monuments and festivals…Tossa de Mar is a place which is sure to be enjoyed and savoured every time.
Our three favourite things to do in Tossa de Mar are:
Eat Tapas – Tossa de Mar has some of the best Tapas restaurants. We love Tapas del Mar, which serves the most scrumptious patatas bravas we have ever tasted. That said, any of the Tapas restaurants in the Tossa de Mar region serve the most authentic Catalan dishes we have ever tasted!
Sightseeing/Cultural Excursions – There are some wonderful sights to behold in and around Tossa de Mar. In the past, we have really enjoyed the short trek up to the Moorish Tower. There are some great photo opportunities on the way to the top, and once you get to the tower the views are nothing short of spectacular.
The Municipal Museum is also a favourite of ours. It is a really understated museum, but it is an absolute gem of a place for anyone who has an interest in art.
Day trips to Barcelona and Lloret de Mar – Barcelona is less than an hour away from Tossa de Mar, and a great place to if you want do some shopping. Lloret de Mar is even closer (approx. 20 minutes) and offers myriad activities, such as strolls along coastal footpaths or in the countryside while discovering the local historical and architectural heritage.
