Dab in the heart of the EmpordĂ  sits what is regarded as Catalonia's largest archaeological site. The Puig de Sant Andreu settlement was the capital of the Iberian tribe the ancient authors named Indigetes and lends insight into the village's evolution from pre-Iberian occupation to the onset of Romanisation.
The Indigetes colonised a broad stretch of land, their source for resources, and managed trade with adjacent indigenous communities, along with, courtesy of its neighbour EmpĂșries, the Greeks and Phoenicians/Carthaginians. Dating to the initial half of the 6th century BC, the settlement was steadily fortified until the mid 4th century BC, thus moulding what is today considered Catalonia's largest ancient city.
