Routes and excursions 

Industrial heritage



This route visits the factories, canals, chimneys and other relics that provide a reminder of the industrial past of La Garrotxa.

The route travels back through time to the pre-Industrial Revolution flourmills and then visits further vestiges of the county’s economic development and industrialization that took place at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The route follows the two main rivers that flow through the county – the Fluvià to the east of Olot and the Brugent in the Hostoles valley – whose waters powered the industries that sprung up on their banks.
