The Can Miquel restaurant is blessed by a privileged natural and historical environment. A good example of this is the ruins of Empúries, which are a part of the Museum of Archaeology of Catalonia. Won’t you come visit it with us?
An essential on the Costa Brava, Empúries was the entrance point of Greek and Roman culture in the Iberian Peninsula. This archaeological site contains the remains of a Greek city -the colonial enclave of Emporion- and of a Roman city -ancient Emporiae, founded in the early 1st century BC on the foundations of a Roman military camp that had been established during the previous century.
You cannot miss the mosaics in the old villae, the sculpture of Asclepius or the imposing Roman forum. In fact, a number of highly interesting guided tours are organized from the MAC-Empúries museum.
History of the site
Excavations began in 1908, and since then scientific recovery has been carried out at a constant rate. Within the site you can visit the Greek city, the Roman city and the museum of archaeology.
