Gateway to Greek and Roman culture in the Iberian Peninsula, Empúries is an exceptional site, where the remains of a Greek city, the colonial enclave of Emporion, coexist with those of a Roman city, the ancient Emporiae, created at the beginning of the 1st century BC on the structures of an ancient Roman military camp.
Empúries site is located in L’Escala, facing the sea, south of Roses bay, and has been classified by UNESCO as one of the most beautiful in the world. During the visit you will be able to step on the streets of the Greek and Roman ancient cities, delight in the mosaics that decorated the houses floors or make a wish to the god Esculapius, who watched over the health of the Emporitans.
A small museum displays a selection of the objects found during the excavations, witnesses to life in the city: children’s toys, jewellery and personal and household items, paintings …
New treasures are excavated every day and come to light helping to build the historical account.
The remains that are seen have approximately 2000 years of history.
