The past of the catalan region Empordà
A look back
Besides the grape drink, the rocky coves, the tramontana wind, the brunyols and the surrealism, the Catalan region Empordà is the first enclave of the Iberian Peninsula where the geeks and Romans settled.
The civilizations came to "Emporion", the current municipality of Sant Martí d'Empúries that still retains its name, and nomenclature that they put a word meaning "market" or "place where trade is practiced" in Greek. The Greeks themselves would later name the Iberian Peninsula, extracted from the Iberian, the second largest river on the peninsula, which currently takes the name of the Ebro.
At this strategic point in the Mediterranean, at the southern end of the current Gulf of Roses, today are preserved, among many others, architectural remains of cultures that we drank in an area that can be visited in the ruins of Empúries, a place where his visit is deserved beyond its indisputable physical and historiographical beauty.
