Route of Garrotxa

Though the last eruption occurred more than 10,000 years ago, the region of La Garrotxa represents the best example of volcanic landscape in Spain and one of the most interesting of Europe.

If we add to this nature reserve of the volcanic area of La Garrotxa a rich and diversified vegetation (thanks to its especially humid climate), an incredibly beautiful landscape and a fine gastronomic culture, it is easy to understand why this area is so appreciated, not only by the tourists, but also by people from Barcelona.

The most interesting places to visit are: Olot, capital of the area of La Garrotxa, Castellfollit de La Roca, with its houses almost hanging from the cliffs, La Fageda d'en Jordà, a beech tree forest, famous for its red and gold colours during autumn, the village of Santa Pau, and Santa Margarida volcano.

If you still have one or two days left, we recommend you to go back to Barcelona through Ripoll (capital of Ripollès region) and through Vic (capital of Osona region), where you will admire, among other things, wonderful examples of the Romanesque architecture of Catalonia.

Though you can get everywhere by public transport, if you want to visit several places this is not recommended, because you would lose too much valuable time.
