    near the cathedral: Buy a map

    by jorgejuansanchez Written Apr 7, 2015

    There were postcards with the painting of El Greco inside the cathedral and also maps. Olot has about 30.000 inhabitants and several nice places to visit, so you will need a map. Otherwise take a picture of the map of the steet, as I did.

    What to buy: a map and postcard of El Greco painting.

    What to pay: it is cheap

    BESALU

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Besalu is an extraordinary medieval village very well kept. Outstanding are the church of Sant Vincent of the X century, the Sant Pere monastery of the X century and the Romanesque bridge over the Fluvia river.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I made the longest itinerary, 10km. It goes throught the Fageda, St. Margarida Volcano and the Croscant Volcano. It takes about 3hrs, taking a break in St. Margarida for 30min. EASY. Check the map.

    The Croscat Volcano

    by trotador Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Croscat is a Strombolian type volcano and its cone, which is 160m high, is the biggest in the Iberian Peninsula. It is also, so it would seem, the youngest of them all. For years it suffered the extraction of volcanic material from its flank, which left an impressive cut. Check the picture.

    The Natural Reserve of the Fageda d'en...

    by trotador Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The "Fageda" is an exceptional beech tree forest because it grows on flat ground at a low altitude (550m). In fact, it grows over a large lava cast that erupted from the Croscat volcano which offers an uneven relief, with numerous very characteristic prominences that can reach up to more than 20 m in height and which are known locally as tossols.
