Ancient Roman Site

Empúries was a town on the Mediterranean coast of the Catalan comarca of Alt Empordà in Catalonia. It was founded in 575 BC by Greek colonists from Phocaea. It was later occupied by the Romans, but in the Early Middle Ages, when its exposed coastal position left it open to marauders, the town was abandoned.

The ruins are midway between the Costa Brava town of L'Escala and the tiny village of Sant Martí.
