What to do
The Capsacosta Roman road
Transited since time immemorial, in recent years this road was used to drive cattle in summer to their high Pyrenean pastures.
The Romanesque churches of La Vall de Bianya
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.
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.
On the trail of the Remences
Thanks to the Sentence of Guadalupe signed by Ferdinand the Catholic, Catalan peasants enjoyed by the 15th century a series of personal freedoms that people in the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of Europe did not possess until many centuries later.
City-centre Olot shopping
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.
Medieval La Garrotxa
Castles and monasteries were at the centre of life in the Middle Ages. Although some of their splendour has waned, today La Garrotxa still maintains vestiges of that past in towns and villages such as Sant Joan les Fonts, Santa Pau and Besalú.
Saint James’ Way
The Saint James’ Way is one of Europe’s great cultural treasures and its waymarked route allows pilgrims (and others!) to visit on foot many of the country’s most important historical points of interest.
La Garrotxa, land of volcanic flavors
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.
...I found that there is a whole world to discover.
