The region of La Garrotxa is known for its landscape, made up of more than 40 volcanoes and lava flows that make up a soft relief full of vegetation. all this set configures the Natural Park of The Volcanic Zone of the Garrotxa, which encompasses eleven municipalities, with the medieval town of Santa Pau as the reference center for the visit to the Fageda d'en Jordà or the volcanoes of the Croscat and Santa Margarita through the skilled paths.

But the Garrotxa hides another landscape, more unknown to the rest of Catalonia but equally enchanting. To the north of the valley of the River Fluvià, the relief becomes steep and steep, with numerous cliffs and gorges. This is the Alta Garrotxa, with villages full of rural charm such as Oix and Beuda and different hiking proposals to discover unique places such as Sadernes, Sant Aniol, Bassegoda or the Mare de Déu del Mont.

The rural essence of La Garrotxa survives especially in its valleys, the Vall d'Hostoles, the Vall de Bianya and the Vall d'en Bas. They also deserve a visit to Olot, dynamic and rich in cultural heritage, and postal populations with a lot of history, such as Castellfollit de la Roca and Besalú. And if you like activity, La Garrotxa has multiple paths that cross the region and with formidable greenways for the practice of cycling. If you want to see the region from the air, you will find different options to enjoy balloon flights.

One of the best known dishes of garrotchina cuisine is olote potatoes. The kitchen of the land of the volcanoes is based on beans, buckwheat, potato, onion, onion, truffle, escarapela and chestnut, which make accompaniment to the pork, wild boar and snails stew. You can taste these recipes at the different gastronomic events that are promoted throughout the year, such as the Gastronomic Days of Sausages or Beans with menus in the different restaurants of the Volcanic Cuisine group.
