Ullastret

is a small historic village on the Bay of Emporda located some 5 km northeast of La Bisbal d'Empordà.

Formerly a 3 km2 lake, known as Llac d'Ullastret or Estany d'Ullastret existed close to this town, but it was desiccated in the 19th century.[1]

It is home to ancient Iberian archaeological remains, and a medieval church known from the 9th century, dedicated to St. Paul and Peter. Economy is based mostly on tourism and agriculture.
