Tossa Municipal Museum

Tossa Municipal Museum is located in the middle of the Vila Vella, or old town. It was inaugurated on September 1, 1935 and can be considered the first museum of modern art in Spain. It includes an important collection of modern art, with works from a historical background of Catalan art from the late 19th and and early 20th centuries, as well as national and foreign artists who frequented Tossa de Mar in the 1930s. One work of art produced in this period was "The Celestial Violinist" by painter Marc Chagall.
