The Romanesque churches of Maià de Montcal and Beuda
Maià de Montcal and Beuda are both good examples of La Garrotxa’s valuable cultural heritage and their wonderful Romanesque churches are the perfect excuse to visit this part of La Garrotxa.
Keeping cool in La Garrotxa
The intense summer heat is an incentive to search for places to cool off, places where you can rest and at the same time get to know some of the other delights of La Garrotxa.
Villages with charm
Despite the multiple attractions – landscape, cuisine and its people – of La Garrotxa, there are some places in this comarca that have a truly unique air about them.
Besalú oozes history from every corner: every street, square and building provides clues to the town’s past and the people that have lived there through the centuries.
Art Noveau La Garrotxa
The Solà-Morales house in the centre of Olot, the school in Les Planes d’Hostoles and Mas la Riba (an old farmhouse) in La Vall de la Bianya are but three of the numerous examples of this artistic style that is so characteristic of Catalonia.
Medieval La Garrotxa
Castles and monasteries were at the centre of life in the Middle Ages. Although some of their splendour has waned, today La Garrotxa still maintains vestiges of that past in towns and villages such as Sant Joan les Fonts, Santa Pau and Besalú.
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.
Catalonia from the Pyrenees to the coast
The goal of this route is to get to know a part of Catalonia following the Carrilet cycle path. This beautiful route will take you from one of the most characteristic spots in the Pre-Pyrenees, the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, to the Costa Brava.
