The capital of the region is La Bisbal d'Empordà, a town with a longstanding pottery tradition that has been kept alive thanks to the activity of a good number of master craftsmen. The history and evolution of the pottery tradition is reflected in the recently inaugurated Terracotta-Pottery Museum of La Bisbal. The streets of the old quarter lead to the Plaça Major, or central square, the erstwhile parade grounds of the Episcopal castle. Built in the mid-11th century, the castle is considered one of the most important examples of the Catalan civil Romanesque style.
