Vilajuïga

It enjoys a privileged location that has provided it with many benefits throughout its history and conserves a considerable group of megalithic tombs, four of which can be found on the summit of Coma d’Infern coomb whilst the fifth stands on the lower part of its slopes. There is the La Carena dolmen, the Les Ruïnes dolmen, the Talaia dolmen, the Garrollar dolmen and the most important one, the Vinya del Rei dolmen.

The Sant Feliu church has maintained its Romanesque nave but not the original chevet. Additionally, Quermançó castle, which appeared in documents since the 11th century, was one of the important castles belonging to the counts of Empúries and served as the backdrop to different battles in the 12th and 13th centuries. In the ruins, we can identify the main tower, the cistern, a chapel and a large interior space with arches. On the outside, we can see two cylindrical brattices.

Empordàlia is an agricultural cooperative that has been running since the early 20th century. Guided tours around the facilities are now available (subject to prior booking). They also have old machinery from the farming world, a small museum about the history of wine and a shop with a wide range of local products, where you can taste the wines.
