Tossa de Mar - information about the city

Tossa de Mar [ˈtosə ðə ˈmar] is a municipality in Catalonia, Spain, located on the Costa Brava, about 103 kilometres north of Barcelona and 100 kilometres south of the French border. It is accessible through Girona Airport, some distance north. Sometime in the 12th century the mediaeval town was walled off and a castle was built on the highest point of Mt. Guardí, this castle was to be subsequently replaced by a wind mill, and this in turn by a lighthouse which is still operational. The "Vila Vella enceinte" is the only example of a fortified medieval town still standing on the Catalan coast. In 1989 Tossa de Mar was the first place in the world to the declare itself an Anti-Bullfighting City.
