The Bay of Roses has joined the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club. The club, which currently only
includes thirty bays, recognises the value provided by the tourism, landscape, and culture in the region
formed by the municipalities of L’Escala and Empúries. With more than seven kilometres of
seafront, l’Escala is bound to have a spot which is ideal for all kinds of beach lovers. The anchovy trade in L'Escala has a long historical tradition, it has a worldwide
reputation and has maintained its artisanal style of production with completely natural products over the years.
The start and the finish lines are at the Empúries Archaeology Museum this historical and culturally.
Empúries was the gateway of Greek and Roman culture to the Iberian Peninsula. This site
preserves the remains of a Greek town - the colonial enclave of Emporion - and a Roman town - the former Emporiae - founded in the early 1st century BC on the foundations of a Roman military
camp which had been set up during the previous century. A whole world to discover.
