57 Reviews

Combine your beach excursion with exploration of the distant past by paying a visit to the ruins of Empuries. Founded in 575 BC by Greek colonists, Empúries was later occupied by Romans before it was ultimately abandoned given its exposed coastal location. Today it remains as the only settlement in Iberia that displays remains from both the Greeks and the Romans.

Among the Empuries ruins, which are only partially excavated, you can tour the amphitheater, old factory, basilica, exquisite Roman floor mosaics, and the foundations of former Greek houses. There’s also on onsite museum, where you can learn more about the excavations, and check out artifacts such as ceramics, utensils, mosaics and other items. Between the history, the views, and the beach and seaside cafes just steps away, you’ll be happy you made the effort to visit this unique corner of Costa Brava.

 Costa Brava one day from Barcelona

Costa Brava one day from Barcelona

In this excursion we will know the Coast of Girona, baptized 100 years ago as Costa Brava, due to its peculiar abrupt and trimmed relief, dotted with small coves surrounded by pine trees and bathed by crystalline waters. - Its natural wealth is manifested in the fact that in a large part of its territory there are several Protected Natural Spaces, such as the Cabo de Creus, the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà and the Marine Reserve of the Medes Islands. - Apart from the characteristic relief of its coastline, the Costa Brava also owes its fame to its villages. Those who once were small fishermen's cores, with whitewashed white-walled houses and narrow and winding alleys, still retain that unique charm today. - This area has been throughout the times the place of entry, passage and settlement of different cultures and civilizations, which have left their mark until today, proof of this are the Greek and Roman sites of Empúries.
