Olot and its volcanoes


  • Nearby municipalities:


From the volcanic rocks used for roads, buildings and parks, the Olot School of Art and its paintings of the local volcanic landscapes, and today’s volcanic cuisine, the volcanoes have left their mark on how the city of Olot and its inhabitants have evolved. This route begins with a visit to the Museum of La Garrotxa in the Hospice building and then heads for the narrow streets in the heart of the old city. It then climbs three volcanoes – Montsacopa, Montolivet and Les Bisaroques – and explores the old watchtowers that still provide highly varied views over the city. The route ends with a stroll through the marshy woodland of La Moixina and the rugged Bosc de Tosca, and a visit to the excellent Volcano Museum.
