Mostra Gastronòmica de la Garrotxa 2016
From 28 of October to 27 of November of 2016
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.
The heart of La Garrotxa Volcanic Z...
This route offers an alternative way of discovering three of the most-visited places in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
Vayreda’s Alta Garrotxa
Marian Vayreda’s novel La Punyalada provides one of the best ways of discovering the Alta Garrotxa. The places depicted by this 19th century author in the scenes from his famous novel have been joined in a discovery route.
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.
La Garrotxa, land of volcanic flavo...
We’ll visit artisans; participate in cooking workshops; taste volcanic cuisine ‘Cuina Volcànica’ and dine in a Michelin-star restaurant; discover some beautiful corners by foot and fly over La Garrotxa’s Volcanic Zone Natural Park in a hot air balloon.
Picture perfect scenery in La Garro...
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.
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.
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.
