Located on the Costa Brava, it is one of the most important archaeological sites in Catalonia. It was occupied by the ancient Greek city of Emporion and later the Roman city of Emporiae, serving as the gateway for the arrival of these classical cultures on the Iberian Peninsula. The remains preserved there provide a wonderful window on the past. Empúries is a hugely important site in our history given that it is where the Romanisation of the Iberian Peninsula began.

In addition to the ruins of the Greek and Roman cities you can visit the permanent exhibition of the dedicated museum, one of the highlights of which is the famous Greek sculpture of the god Asclepius, the Asclepius of Empúries.

The history of the Can Saragossa farmhouse is synonymous with the history of the town of Lloret. As a working farmhouse it was one of the oldest in the town. After undergoing a modernist refurbishment in the 19th century it became a luxury summer residence before being turned into a hotel in 1954. It currently houses the permanent Iberian archaeology exhibitions and the extensive Joan Llaverias collection. Its rooms also house the headquarters of the Cultural Heritage Unit, among others, of Lloret de Mar Town Council.

The Museum of the Citadel of Roses (MCR) gives visitors the chance to discover the history of the town, from

the Neolithic period, Greek colonisation, Roman times, the Visigoth period and Middle Ages right up to the present day.

An audio-visual production entitled 'The Poseidon Sea' is shown, explaining the first ships to arrive in the Bay of Roses. Evidence of the various periods can be explored in the outdoor area of the site. A programme of activities, shows and concerts is scheduled for summer nights.
