The Roman villa of Els Ametllers, discovered in 1914, is one of the most important villas in the ancient province of Tarraco. It was mainly dedicated to the cultivation of vines and the export of wines.
Two distinct architectural zones emerge: that of the residence (pars urbana) and the agricultural part (pars fructuaria).
The thermal baths, mosaics, stucco, winter dining room and swimming pool all bear witness to the size of the first zone. The second one constituted the industrial zone with, most notably, the warehouses and rooms where the agricultural products were worked.
In the heart of the walled old town which dates back to the 12th century, the Municipal Museum of Tossa de Mar occupies the so called Casa Falguera, also known as the House of the Mayor of Sac (Casa del Batlle de Sac), one of the most prestigious buildings in the town.
Archaeological finds from the Els Ametllers Villa (Roman period), Catalan and foreign paintings, sculpture and a collection of glass are exhibited n this iconic building.
