|From Empuries looking out to sea|
Entry to Empuries is excellent value at €5 for me and €4 for Dave which included an audioguide each. We began by watching a short film that gave an overview of the twin city sites, then walked around each city in turn. The audioguides were very good and really helped to bring what we saw to life for us. There are few explanatory signs so Empuries would just have been half an hour of baffling low stone walls otherwise! Instead we spent a good couple of hours walking around listening to our guides. This was in part also due to my having pulled a muscle in my back the day before which made walking, and especially going up and down steps, slow going.

Empuries is on the outskirts of L'Escala which we didn't get to explore this time around. After our Empuries visit, we went to the seafront promenade for a delicious tapas lunch though before driving home. We are happy to recommend the cafe Le Basilic!
