The Empordà, the Costa Brava, was the entry point of the Romans on the Iberian Peninsula. Many colonies were organized around this area, taking advantage of the good weather and the resources offered. This is the case of the Roman Villa of Pla de Palol, close to Cala Rovira, in Platja d'Aro. It was a villa in where wine and oil were produced and exported from the Roviera port to the rest of the Roman Empire.
