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 Cork Museum, located in the centre of Palafrugell, is dedicated to the interpretation and dissemination of local heritage and of the areas related to the cork industry in Catalonia. The museum's first exhibit is the building itself, a factory in the Catalan modernist style designed by General Guitart and built between 1900 and 1907. It currently contains several exhibition areas of the museum, structured around a small cork oak forest.

The museum offers visitors some insight into cork oak forests, cork, its artisan and industrial exploitation for the manufacture of a wide variety of products and (through an audio-visual presentation) the amazing history of what was the largest cork factory in Spain and one of the most important in the world.

You can always find a reason to make a return visit to the museum. Keep up to date with what's on in the temporary exhibition area and the events hall, along with the activities and workshops organised for children or families. And if you also wish to purchase something, don’t miss the museum store with cork products.

The Wine Museum of Peralada Castle 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.
