About Day Trip to Historical Garrotxa Intro

Our visit takes us to discover the historical destinations of the La Garrocha region. This Girona region has spectacular volcanic landscapes and dreamlike medieval towns.

Itinerary Itinerary

Discover the most emblematic towns of La Garrotxa, this wonderful county in the Catalan province of Girona.

The first thing we will have the opportunity to admire is the hanging houses of Castellfollit. This little village located 300 meters above sea level is placed in a basalt crag over 50 meters  high and almost a kilometer long. It was formed by the overlaying of two lava flows. As it is one of the smallest towns in the Peninsula with one square kilometer in size, you can walk to the edge of the precipice.

For lovers of pastries, we have the great surprise of visiting a historic cookies factory and the opportunity to taste them. Yum!

After our delicious stop we will walk along Besalú and will know its history thanks to our guided visit. The town's most significant feature is its 12th-century Romanesque bridge over the Fluvià river. The church of Sant Pere also has a great importance for this village, along with the remains of a medieval synagogue.

In Lake of Banyoles, the largest natural lake in Catalonia, we will have the opportunity to relax and walk along its beautiful landscape and maybe, if the weather permits, we can take a bath. This lake is also popular for being the rowing location for the Barcelona Olympics 1992.
