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.
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.
