What to do
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.
Old trails, today’s landscapes
The best way to discover a territory is through its history and its landscapes by walking the old trails. We’ll follow the Annia trail, the best preserved roman road in all the Iberian Peninsula, and the medieval trails that still link villages.
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.
The best viewpoints in La Garrotxa
Another way to discover La Garrotxa is to climb up high for a bird’s-eye view over the comarca.
The secrets of Girona’s Greenways
The Girona greenways have 125km of reclaimed railway tracks, that go from the Pyrenees to la Costa Brava. We’ll discover the hidden secrets on a bike: volcanic landscapes, old mines, waterfalls, Romanesque churches….
Besalú oozes history from every corner: every street, square and building provides clues to the town’s past and the people that have lived there through the centuries.
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.
...I found that there is a whole world to discover.
