Empordà

The dolmens and menhirs of the area of Albera and Cap de Creus stand out as the most notable places of our history, as well as the Greco-Roman remains of Empúries and the Citadel of Roses. From this medieval era, we find Romanic churches, the monastery of Vilabertran and of Sant Pere de Rodes, the latter being the greatest exponent. Of later era, we have the gothic style Cathedral of Castelló d’Empúries, the fortification of Sant Ferran in Figueres and some modernist buildings, until reaching our times with the genius of Salvador Dalí and this Theater Museum of Figueres and house in Portlligat.


But all of these elements cannot be understood without the Emporda landscape, a good part of which is protected: the Natural Park of Aiguamolls del Empordà, Cap de Creus, the Natural Spot of Albera and the area of Basecoat. Another important component of the Alt Empordà is the gastronomy of the sea and mountain, the fish “suquet”, goose with turnips, “brunyols” of Empordà, and notable products like the Emporda Denomination of Origin wines, anchovies from L’Escala, oil from the presses of the region, sweet sausages, etc. 
All of these aspects make the Alt Empordà an embracing land ready to receive you.
