Transited since time immemorial, in recent years this road was used to drive cattle in summer to their high Pyrenean pastures.
Itinerary that brings us to the zone of la Vall del Bac and Alta Garrotxa (Garrotxan Highlands), where we come across sites of great natural interest and wonderful landscapes.
A walk through some ot the prettiest corners of the Vall de Bianya, following the course of the Santa Lucia river until reahing the Rovira bridge, apart from being able to visit the church of Sant Pere Despuig.
Itinerary that takes us to the Romanesque church of Santa Margarida de Bianya, leaving from the small hamlet of Hostalnou de Bianya. Along the hike there are wonderful views of the Bianya valley.
A circular walk that provides spectacular views of L’Alta Garrotxa and the Pyrenees as it passes through woods of ancient oaks.
On clear days on certain stretches of this walk you can look eastwards and enjoy the views that extend right across the Empordà plain as far as the Mediterranean Sea.
This route offers an alternative way of discovering three of the most-visited places in La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
The Carrilet is for walkers and cyclists only and follows the route of the narrow gauge railway that once linked Olot and Girona.
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.
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.
Another way to discover La Garrotxa is to climb up high for a bird’s-eye view over the comarca.
