Empordàlia is located in the Empordà, the Catalan district with the most marked historical and cultural personality. It combines past and present with its finest offerings: the fruits of the olive tree and the vine. Empordàlia is the living chronicle of ancient cellars that bring together in every bottle history and quality under the label of the Designation of Origin Empordà. They work an area of land that is on a human scale: 500 hectares of centuries-old olive trees and 250 hectares of old and new vines, set in the heart of a rocky landscape swept by the Tramuntana wind, watered by occasional but generous rainfalls and spiced by the salt air of the sea.

One of the most interesting in Catalonia, the historic city of Girona invites visitors to trace its more than 2000 years of history through two fortified enclosures, the Força Vella and the Medieval Quarter.

The city's artistic heritage has been preserved in the numerous monuments that have survived until today. The highlights of Girona are rounded off by the impressive old Jewish Quarter or Call, with its beautiful streets and porticoed squares, and by the exuberant baroque spaces and Noucentisme-style buildings by architect Rafael Masó.
