Located in the El Collsacabra area, the old medieval town of Rupit provides breath-taking vistas of Guilleries, El Montseny and the neighbouring cliffs of Tavertet, Avenc and Far. The rugged natural landscape provides visitors with views of the pretty Romanesque Church of Sant Joan de Fàbregues, the Sallent waterfall and the natural monument of Agullola hill. To the north, Pruit, with its scattered farmhouses, evokes a time when wealth was associated with the land.
Empúries (Catalan: Empúries [əmˈpuɾiəs]) was an ancient city on the Mediterranean coast of Catalonia. The Greek city Emporion, meaning "trading place", was founded in 575 BC by Greek colonists from Phocaea. After the invasion of Gaul from Iberia by Hannibal the Carthaginian general in 218 BC, the city was occupied by the Romans (Latin: Emporiæ). In the Early Middle Ages, the city's exposed coastal position left it open to marauders and it was abandoned.
