La Garrotxa
a spectacular county

A unique territory to discover!!

La Garrotxa is a peculiar county of the Pyrenees of Girona, which has become the paradise of rural tourism. It limits on the north with the Pyrenees, a natural barrier between the region and the french county of Vallespir; and to the east, on the other hand, it is bordered by the coastal plains of county of Empordà. It is a land of transition between the mountain and the plain, and is amazing for its great diversity of landscapes.

The Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa is the best exponent of volcanic landscapes of the Iberian Peninsula. It has more than forty volcanic cones and more than twenty basaltic lava flows. The orography, the soil and the climate provide a varied vegetation, often exuberant, with holm oak, oak and beech groves of exceptional landscaping value. All of this, makes La Garrotxa as the ideal place to practice rural tourism, to enjoy nature, to discover the history and the legends, to discover fairs and popular festivals, and to live and experience a gastronomy of proximity and quality.
