Joseph recently took a quick break from all of his hard work here at DLG to visit one of the most important (and beautiful) archaeological sites in Catalonia, Spain. Located in the Gulf of Roses on the Costa Brava, the Ruins of Empúries are filled with both Greek and Roman treasures. These ruins, considered the gateway to the Iberian Peninsula for many, feature walls, columns, streets, houses, painting, mosaics, and more, from both the Greeks, who first founded their colony here in 6th Century B.C., and the Romans, who later occupied this area in 1st Century B.C. With more than 2,500 years of history here, it is easy to get a glimpse of what life was like for both ancient cultures. You can also enjoy the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean, and all of the beaches and coves surrounding the ancient ruins. Don’t enjoy the views too much though, Joseph. We all need you back here at DLG soon!
