Torroella de Montgrí is a town in the Baix Empordà county, situated at the foot of the Montgrí Massif (302 m), 6 km from the coast and very near the River Ter that irrigates the surrounding plain.
The climate is mild, with a mean annual temperature of 14.8 ºC, averaging 8.8 ºC in January and 22.5 ºC in July.
The main sources of wealth are agriculture, on the fertile plain lands, and commerce, as evidenced by the lively Monday morning market.
Workshops and small businesses account for industrial activity of the area. Although not a tourist town as such, Torroella has a lot to offer visitors who wish to discover a traditional Empordà market town.
An excellent programme of cultural events throughout the year attracts visitors and local residents alike.
