“Great early morning walk”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Having been to Tossa de Mar many times, this is a nice distraction with the kids. We had to ask a couple of people for directions, but we did find the Tower. It was pretty much all uphill with very little shade (if you go in the summer, you should go earlier in the day). If you keep walking up the hill past the tower, there is a beautiful sightseeing place to see Tossa de Mar.

“Great Views”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

The walk up to the tower is quite steep in the hot weather but most people should be OK. There is a great view of the town once you get there. The tower is locked off so you cannot get in. There wasn't anything else to do once you are there but its well worth the 10 minute walk just for the views

“Landmark you should visit”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

The Moorish Tower dominates Tossa de Mar and is worth doing the hike. There are many picturesque places along the way and the views cannot be beat. If you hike all the way to the top, there is a lighthouse and cafe. I got some great photos along the way and it's a perfect way to explore Old Town as well.
