The Ruins at Empuries
Hardly 300m from the Hostal we find the ruins of Empuries, a magical location beside the sea which shelters the artifacts and bountiful remains of the Greek and Roman cultures which co-existed in this ancient metropolis. Being one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain make this a unique legacy which must be seen.
Moreover, the chance to appreciate the natural beauty of this setting, walking the pathways between the city walls, the houses, temples, baths, forum, amphitheatre and markets will give you an educational experience of incalculable historic value.
The site also contains a museum (affiliated to the Museum of Archaeology in Catalunya) built by the great innovative architect Puig i Cadafalch, which houses pieces such as mosaics, paintings, ceramics and sculpture of great intrinsic worth, which will help you re-live the fascinating origins of these civilizations.
