Places of interest
La Garrotxa is a region located in the NE of Catalonia and is the best exponent of the volcanic landscape of the Iberian Peninsula and one of the most interesting in Europe. The Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone and Natural Reserves of La Garrotxa is a beautiful exhibition of some thirty volcanic cones in very good condition. The craters look perfectly. They have ten to one hundred and sixty meters high and three hundred to five hundred meters in diameter at their base. In the most emblematic, the Volcano of Santa Margarida, we will even find a beautiful hermitage built in the 15th century inside the crater.
The region is divided into two totally differentiated territories: the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of the Garrotxa and the Area of Natural Interest of the Alta Garrotxa.
