Right at the top of the Verdera Mountain Range, there is one of the most interesting monumental sites for finding out about the mediaeval world. The epicentre of the complex is Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery which became the most important one in the County of Empúries, both due to the relevant role held by its abbots as well as for the relics stored in it, thanks to which it became a top-class pilgrimage centre.

Allow yourselves to be transported a thousand years back in time through the guided visits offered at the monastery, in the village and the church of Santa Creu de Rodes as well as in Verdera Castle. We encourage you to enjoy unique experiences, ranging from gymkhanas for all the family through to tasting DO Empordà wines paired with local products. You can also enjoy the restaurant at Sant Pere de Rodes, in the monastery’s viewpoint, with a service that is as good as the views you will be able to see.

At the Sant Pere de Rodes Monumental Site, you will find a world waiting to be discovered!

This family-run museum houses a collection of utensils, objects and documents belonging to the Artizà-Cusí-Santamaria family, devoted to the world of vineyards and wine since 1680. The section devoted to Gregori Artizà (Capmany, 1839-1921), a school teacher by profession and writer of several books, is particularly noteworthy. In 1906, Gregori Artizà took part in the 1st International Congress of the Catalan language, where he gave a lecture. The museum houses a copy of the congress book, which lists all the lectures given there, along with a first edition (1918) of Gràmatica catalana by Pompeu Fabra. Gregori Artizà was given the task of detecting and monitoring phylloxera in the province of Girona and the museum displays several official documents, articles and utensils that he used in his study of this insect. As for the other items on display in the museum, it is worth mentioning three pieces of furniture listed as belonging to the 18th century Catalan farmhouse: a headboard in the Olot style, a bridal chest and the front of another bridal chest.

The Catalan Coast Culinary Museum is located in a sixteenth-century home nestled in Tossa’s Sa Roqueta fishermen’s quarter. The house, built outside the town walls, was fortified to withstand attacks from pirates and privateers. Once the residence of Tomàs Vidal i Rey, one of the first indianos to return to the town after earning his fortune in Guatemala in the second half of the eighteenth century, the house was later used for a number of different purposes, including a fishermen’s tavern in the early twentieth century. Today, visitors can see a traditional Catalan kitchen complete with utensils and a hearth where food was cooked over an open fire, along with a cold room that was dug into the rock to preserve food. The museum offers guided and self-guided tours, workshops and culinary experiences that incorporate other points of interest in the seaside town of Tossa de Mar: the fishermen’s quarter, local estates and farmers, iconic food and kitchen accessory stores, bakeries, restaurants that feature traditional and creative cuisine as well as family-owned, gourmet hotels.

In Palamós, fishermen's work at sea becomes a living spectacle right before visitors' eyes when the boats return to port in the mid-afternoon. That's when the unloading of fish offers an unrivalled picture of colour and activity.

In Palamós, the world of fishing doesn't end on the docks, but continues at the Fishing Museum, a museum on the Mediterranean, one-of-a-kind in its field. This centre presents the past, present and future of fishing through its permanent exhibition and a series of activities related to the ​​Costa Brava's maritime and fishing lifestyle: guided tours of the fish auction, outings on professional fishing vessels, sea routes and workshops. Its Espai de Peix (Fishing Space), the museum's gastronomic classroom, also hosts discovery activities and grading of fish unloaded at the port of Palamós as well as cooking and tasting of seafood dishes.

The Cork Museum is an institution in the heart of Palafrugell dedicated to the interpretation and dissemination of the Catalan cork regions and heritage.

The first thing to see in the museum is the building itself, a modernist factory designed by General Guitart that was built between 1900 and 1907 and today contains several of the museum’s exhibition spaces. The current “Cork in Progress” exhibition is temporary and explains how the museum is in full transformation.

The museum begins with the Can Mario audio-visual presentation to tell cork’s exceptional history, followed by an exhibition that traces the cork from the forest to

the factory to make caps, disks, paper and chipboard, through a space where visitors can experiment with cork and, finally, a space where visitors can collaborate

by evaluating the plans for the future museum and sharing their opinion.

The Castillo Perelada Wine Museum is housed in the basement of the convent of El Carme, a 14th century building restored at the end of the 20th century. The

present-day cava cellars were originally located here before being moved to the exterior in the 1960s. The museum displays all kinds of objects related to the

culture of wine, spanning a period from the 4th century B.C. to the turn of the 20th century. The most noteworthy exhibits include the glass collection, with items dating all the way back to the 16th century, and the huge barrels with large wooden hoops that held thousands of litres and had to be built inside the cellars since they were too big to get through the doors. The visit forms part of the general visit of the castle museum.
