"Place to be" is the only word to define this place. Have a walk & have amazing view of ocean "The Mediterranean Sea", Rainbows, sun etc. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

We walked up from the road past the Villa Romana hotel, when the road ended we came to a path in the woods and eventually up a rocky slope to the top. Of course we then realised that this was not the easiest route !! There is nothing to see apart from the tower, but the view is fantastic looking... More

My young son and took the stroll up to the Moorish Tower. The Tower nor the walk were particularly memorable, but the site does provide a unique view of Tossa. I got my son very excited about the tower when I pointed it out to him and said: "wow, look over there - there's another section of castle hidden in... More

After walking up to the hill about 15 minutes, you'll see beautiful Tossa from above. Though the tower was closed I made a few good photos.

This is officially called the Can Magi Tower. I recommend a walk up to the tower for a unique view of Tossa that really gives you a different perspective on what it must have been like to live here hundreds of years ago and look out to sea to see if friend or foe was on their way. I'm not... More

When in Tossa you walk the town and shop, go swimming in the sea and eat at the various restaurants. When you look up you see the bTower. Eventually most walk up the steep cobblestone path to see not only the Tower, but the magnificent views. When I did the Tower was closed, but I found my favorite few restaurants... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
