La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, Costa Brava, Catalonia
Ecotourism in Spain

 
 
 
 

La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park (Parque Natural Zona Volcánica de la Garrotxa) is located nearby the town of Olot in Costa Brava, on the north-east Spain. The region has as many as 30 volcanic cones, craters and lava outflows which make it into one of Europe's major nature parks and Parque Natural de Cap de Creus that is a combination of land and sea set in the wonderful and wild countryside on the peninsula of the same name.

When it comes to the Garrotxa Volcanic Nature Reserve, there are three places to see providing special and unusual views. They include the rounded hump of the Mt. Montsacopa Volcano that offers a great bird’s eye view of the city of Olot; the Batet high Plateau with its spectacular panoramic view over the Garrotxa valleys and the Pyrenees; and finally the Jordà fageda (beech tree grove) that is beautiful and tranquil spot in the middle of the forest.

Garrotxa volcanic area is also an interesting historical site of the village Santa Pau. It is a calm village laid out around its imposing castle. A visit to the village and experiencing the local tastes such as fesols and small white beans would be excellent.
