Volcanoes in la Garrotxa
We have to go back between ten thousand and seven hundred thousand years to experience the several volcanic eruptions, the hard natural phenomenon that created a singular landscape, and now we can enjoy the forty volcanoes and more than twenty lava flows in La Garrotxa the hard natural phenomenon that created a singular landscape, and now we can enjoy the forty volcanoes and more than twenty lava flows in La Garrotxa
Of them all, we want to stand out the youngest volcano in the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Area, the Cruscat volcano. From one of its sides volcanic material was extracted, and now you can see the different geological layers.
Three kilometres and half away, we can find the Santa Margarida volcano, with a perfect round crater and inside the crater there is the Romanic hermitage of Santa Margarida.
Just in the middle of Olot, the Montsacopa volcano rise. From the top you can enjoy a complete panoramic view of the town. To one side of the crater there is the hermitage of Sant Francesc de Pàdua, with two guard towers built during the French occupation.
These are some of the most iconic volcanoes. However, ther are activities that show us other spectacular volcanic places. Routes by 4x4, segway, bicycle or walk that take us to less crowded corners.
