Although cloudy it was still warm as we headed a short distance north along the coast. We drove through Lloret de Mar the major resort town along the coast (which was a typical over developed holiday town but not as bad as Benidorm) to the small town of Tossa de Mar.

This was a lovely seaside town dominated by medieval walls and turrets of the old quarter, Vila Vella which sits on a hill above the more modern town. The town was originally founded by the Romans. We decided to explore the old town by first walking the walls and then the cobbled streets. We discovered ruins of the towns 15th century church, a statue of Ava Gardner who made the town famous in the 1950 film, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, and great views along the coast.

We then decided to walk the well marked coastal path north before returning to the town.

A lovely little town.
