Empúries (Catalan name; in Spanish: Ampurias) is a town on the Mediterranean coast, of the Catalan comarca of Alt Empordà. It was founded in 575 BC by Greek colonists from Phocaea with the name of Εμπόριον ( Emporion — "market"). It was later occupied by the Romans, but in the Early Middle Ages the town was abandoned.

Al llarg del segle VII aC els pobladors indígenes d'aquesta zona habitaven en diversos enclavaments situats en les elevacions que sobresortien entre els aiguamolls. Un d'aquests assentaments de l'edat del ferro es trobava en un petit istme, on avui hi ha el poble de Sant Martí d'Empúries.
