The museum sits under the wall of the castle and will cost a few euros entrance. There are a few Roman and medieval items on display but mainly the museum has a small collection of paintings. There does not seem to be any theme and the small leaflet does not go into details. However some of the items do have... More

Entry fee of €3 paid for admission to a museum that seemed to be in the throes of being dismantled. Three artistic videos with little information formed the bulk of the exhibit. A room of interesting objects was lacking explanations. The museum had no toilet and a grumpy cashier. Ten minutes worth. Save your money and go to the municipal... More

Pity TripAdviser does not give opportunity to add a photo - the beaches are cosy and fantastic I hope whem TA approves this review this option becomes available. Better to see once than to read twice

A novel way of showing the history of lighthouses, and associated stuff, as I found out when I read about it after our visit. Can't help feeling that it should have been better explained at the time - guidebook, English narrative, posters, information boards .... anything!! Or maybe I missed something? Visually quite stunning though.

Brilliant walks and views around this beautiful quaint old town. Little shops and Taverns to keep you watered and fed. Best on the Costa Brava. Taking a sea taxi to the next towns was brill.

Tossa de Mar in my opinion is the most attractive of the towns we visited on the Costa Brava. You can either walk up the spiral path or take the little train to the Far (lighthouse) on the headland. I can recommend the walk to help work off the dinner you've eaten in any one of a number of excellent... More
