“Take your camera, the views are stunning.”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Whether taking pictures of the great views up the coast or just snapping the nooks and crannies of the tiny streets and houses this is a photographers dream location.
As already has been written,there is a snack bar and two good restaurants and also the best tapas bar in Tossa near the top of the walk.
You cannot say you have been to Tossa without a visit to the Vila Vella.

“You must see this.”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

If you are fit, then walk up and back down, but be warned it is not for the feint hearted. For those of us who do no longer have the stamina, the the Blue Train will take the strain out of the journey which is an absolute must. There is a bar at the top and another half way down, so you can get food and drinks if needed.
THIS HISTORIC TRIP IS NOT TO BE MISSED.

“Romantic place”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

It is very romantic place. You just wonder around and enjoy a beautiful view of the town & sea. It is fabulous view you can ask for especially in the evening. You can walk up to light house and take a lovely picture.
