Right in the heart of the city, next to the church of Sant Esteve, the Saints Museum and Montsacopa volcano, is the Plaça Mercat (Market Square) and Olot shopping centre, where you will find more than 300 establishments of all kinds and for all tastes.
The commercial cluster has become a large outdoor shopping area for quality purchases based on convenience and a friendly service. One-hundred-year-old establishments, innovative undertakings, craftspeople and local producers with agrifood quality seals coexist alongside each other. An attractive, dynamic and pleasant centre, where you can take a stroll and shop at the same time.
The Plaça Mercat (Plaça Hospital, 3) is a benchmark in Olot, where good service, the diversity of local products and the unbeatable facilities characterise its identity and authenticity.
The Associació de Comerciants d'Olot (Merchants' Association of Olot) and the Associació de Placers (Association of Stallholders) work together all year round on activities to promote the city, such as Botiga al carrer (February/August), Emprimavera't (April), Fira del Primer de Maig (First of May Fair), Olot Shopping Nit (June) or the Christmas campaign.
