La Fageda d'en Jorda, Olot

Must see · Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
The mineral-rich soil of La Fageda d'en Jorda comes from a volcanic eruption that covered the area millennia ago. This disaster gave birth to new life, and now the nature reserve is home to an abundance of tree species. Hiking trails are marked and include rough wooden steps in steeper areas, but even with small inclines, the walks are low impact. Along the 1.5 km (0.93 mi) walk, you may come across a monolithic stone with an inscription of poetry at the base by Joan Maragall, a notable Spanish poet. Before you head to Olot, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Olot trip tool, to make sure you see all that Olot has to offer, including La Fageda d'en Jorda.

  • A unique natural space that feeds your soul
  • Horrible sight of horses being abused for touristic tours, a single horse being obliged to carry huge carriage of 12 + adults on it. Horrible people, horrible place. I'm Never coming back and denouncing animal abuse.
  • Excellent colourful walk in the beech forest
  • So, the woman at the deskfront told us not to buy the one euro map, cause "it's impossible to get lost". Well, we did, thanks there was line in the forest and we could use google maps. Exceeept for that woman, the landscape is beautiful and the walk is easy.
  • Beech forest .very beautiful in autumn ,when the leaves are colorful (red, green, yellow) . in weekends crowded whith families and school excursions
