Church of Sant Vicenç de Tossa de Mar

Church
Built in a Baroque style, Sant Vicenç de Tossa de Mar replaced the former parish church. Practically all of the altarpieces that decorated it were destroyed, although the polychromy of the interior has been preserved.

This is a large building in the centre of Vila Nova de Tossa but outside the walled mediaeval compound. It is formed by a central nave with side chapels. It was built in a popular late-Baroque style and the decoration inside the church consists of paintings in the vault and on the walls surrounding the altar in the chancel. It is worth pointing out a mediaeval holy water font which came from the former church of the old town and can be found in the chancel.

The interior décor, with its Baroque altarpieces and statues from the old church, was destroyed in 1936, although some of the colours can still be seen. We can highlight the chapel of Saint Sebastian (17th century), the chapel of the Most Pure, with the only altarpiece that has been preserved (18th century).
