Trip to Empuries
SPAIN, 2001, 15'
  by AGON - Tuesday, 3 January 2012

Ampurias (Empùries): Located on the Costa Brava (Gerona, Spain). This is one of the most important archaeological sites in Catalonia. The ancient port city, known to the Greeks as Emporion and to the Romans as Emporiae was the gateway to the Iberian Peninsula for the classical cultures. The vestiges preserved here are a magnificent testimony to this glorious past. The moment when Biel passes through the tunnel of time and appears at an ancient market would be situated in the 1st century B.C. It was a time when at Emporiae three cultures lived together: the indigenous (Indiketas), the Greeks and the Roman.
