Old trails, today’s landscapes
The best way to discover a territory is through its history and its landscapes by walking the old trails. We’ll follow the Annia trail, the best preserved roman road in all the Iberian Peninsula, and the medieval trails that still link villages.
The Romanesque churches of La Vall de Bianya
The traces of the history of La Vall de Bianya can be followed in this itinerary that visits the 15 Romanesque churches that decorate this peaceful corner of La Garrotxa.
Flora and Fauna
Orchids, rare plants, birds, amphibians, butterf lies, dragonf lies, traces of animals, volcanoes, lava flows and some unique geological phenomenon are some examples of what we’ll see during five intensive days of real wild nature.
Picture perfect scenery in La Garrotxa. Art and nature.
Live the experience of making fresh cow’s cheese, enjoy a walk tour at night through “La Fageda d’en Jordà” beech forest, ride a horse in the Volcanic Zone Natural Park, visit a landscape painter’s work studio and paint in the countryside.
Nature, culture and gastronomy
The best viewpoints in La Garrotxa
Another way to discover La Garrotxa is to climb up high for a bird’s-eye view over the comarca.
City-centre Olot shopping
On every street corner in Olot you’ll find a shop where you can buy exquisite local products, guaranteed to satisfy even the most demanding of palates, all prepared with top-quality products and the know-how of local cooks.
Olot and its volcanoes
The city of Olot spreads out around the base of one of La Garrotxa’s best known volcanoes –Montsacopa– and climbing its slopes is a perfect way to rediscover nature without actually leaving the city.
The Capsacosta Roman road
Transited since time immemorial, in recent years this road was used to drive cattle in summer to their high Pyrenean pastures.
Saint James’ Way
The Saint James’ Way is one of Europe’s great cultural treasures and its waymarked route allows pilgrims (and others!) to visit on foot many of the country’s most important historical points of interest.
On the trail of the Remences
Thanks to the Sentence of Guadalupe signed by Ferdinand the Catholic, Catalan peasants enjoyed by the 15th century a series of personal freedoms that people in the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe did not possess until many centuries later.
