Saint Vincent Church

Address:Plaça de l'Església. 17320 Tossa de Mar
Price: free of charge

The baroque church of Saint Vincent in Tossa de Mar is located in a very busy central square of the village. It was built in the eighteenth century to replace the one in the Vila Vella fortification, which had become too small, and therefore was built in Baroque style. The quadrangular tower remained unfinished and the interior was renovated in the twentieth century due to the ravages of the Spanish Civil War. Normally it is open and it's a place of refuge and prayer available to all, in contrast to the street excitement outside.

    From the north side of Platja de Lloret beach, you can walk about 20 minutes to the upper town (called Lloret de Dalt) to visit the discrete remains of a Roman tomb dating from the second century AD. In fact this tomb, which unfortunately was demolished in 1967 with the urn containing the remains of the unknown person buried, and rebuilt with the same materials a year later, is located in an ancient necropolis in this place called Can Avellaners de Can Sala, where today nothing is preserved. The tower was discovered and excavated in 1891.
