- Budget


14th century former governor’s residence with Roman mosaics and Chagall paintings.

If you’re visiting Tossa in the summer, chances are you’ve probably come to enjoy the beaches but whatever the weather, this little museum is definitely worth making time for. It’s not vast and can easily be seen in around half an hour or so but it’s an elegant little place, housed in what was previously the governor’s mansion. Set on four floors, the basement contains archaeological finds with Roman coins and statues and an impressive Roman mosaic rescued from what was originally a villa nearby. If you’re an art fan, you’ll love the upper floors which house a collection of paintings dating from the 1930s when Tossa was a bohemian artists’ colony.  Many international artists visited including Marc Chagall and in amongst the works of various prominent local artists, you  can also see the painting Chagall donated to the museum.
