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.
Transited since time immemorial, in recent years this road was used to drive cattle in summer to their high Pyrenean pastures.
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.
