What you'll do

Do you know what are the burial and funeral traditions here? What was the land like and the life hundreds years ago at the Roman villa? Who is Pandora and what made this village so famous? What movies were (or will) be filmed here and what famous people were born in the village or visited this place? Do you want to know more about the Spanish-Catalan life?
During our walk around the village you will hear the secrets... because behind the walls there is so much to discover!
Other things to note
It is a fair walk, but at some points we go “uphill” a bit, so be prepared to have water and comfortable shoes.
In case of very bad wheather (heavy rain) the walk will be cancelled or postponed.

I have been living in Tossa for 5 years and it was a love at first sight! Since then I am so passionate about this small village: I wanted to learn and experience everything what this magic place offered and live like a local, not an expat. I started to learn the Catalan culture, their traditions and got more and more into the “secrets” of this ancient fisherman’s village. Because Tossa is not only the beaches, it is much more... I will tell you the “hidden stories”, what I have learned from the locals throughout the years, not written anywhere.. The “Secrets of Tossa”.

Silvia is a very open and friendly person, she really knows her way around the town and you can see she’s become one of the Tossians by now. She has a very good understanding of the life and history of the town and has a creative way of sharing the stories to the group. Knows how to adapt to the level of knowledge of everyone and is very passionate about conveying what she knows. The tour was just right both as length and as content. Very supportive and helpful with some AirBNB issues I had encountered as well beforehand.

Our tour of Tossa with Silvia was good. We stopped at places we’d passed by throughout our week here, and Silvia described the scenes and places to us. I’d say this is a good general tour of Tossa- we didn’t go too deep into specific history, but I gained more knowledge of the town and its long history.

Great tour. In addition to showing us well known historical sites, Silvia also shared interesting stories about local customs and legends. A friendly, flexible expat, who has taken Tossa to heart, it was quite interesting to hear her views. Our entire family enjoyed the tour, would highly recommend. LBM

We kicked off our time in Tossa with this tour and glad we did so. Sylvia offered a perspective about the non-touristy side of Tossa de Mar and it’s citizens that was unique and appreciated.

Silvia has unique insight into the area's history and culture and had a well thought out tour. She made me feel welcomed and was willing to answer all sorts of questions. Her local connections made the tour even better.

Silvia hosts a great walking tour. She knows a lot about the town and the people in addition to knowing a lot about the places and monuments she showed on the tour. She was also friendly and kind, and flexible! The weather wasn’t too good when we were then and she happily rescheduled a couple of times so we didn’t have to walk in the rain. It was a comprehensive tour that was a good length. We’re really glad we did it :)
