Peralada, a medieval noblemen`s town located in the in the province of Empordą, is constructed on the ruins of a sixth century fortified Iberian settlement. Among its most important historic monuments are the 14th century castle and its walls and the Romanic and Gothic convents.

The castle houses one of the best collections of Spanish glass and ceramics, medieval sculpture, paintings, coins, ironwork and a wine museum as well as an exceptional library with over 70,000 books, 200 incunabula and an archive of original documents since the 9th century.
