La Fageda d'en Jorda, Olot
(4.8/5 based on 440 reviews on the web)
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. With our international travel planner, Olot attractions like La Fageda d'en Jorda can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is worth going one day to see the fageda, it is impressive to see all the soil full of leaves and feel the calm that reigns. If you go with time, you can make a tour with wagons, which the Carters explain some history of as it was formed.

  • Beautiful beech forest where to walk and get away from the world. Weekend is full of people and sometimes even overwhelmed you. However, if you can put aside the crying of children, for example, you can enjoy a very nice morning between nature.

  • A beautiful beech forest in la Garrotxa. Worth walk calmly and explore roads to enjoy the Majesty of the trees and the contrast of lights to filter the sunlight. That Yes, care on weekends because the parking lot is overflowing and the nearest (route 2) is too busy. However if you keep walking and you get a little more the crowd disappears and reach the calm. Worst? The senira that had information. Seemingly affable but apathetic. The question of what routes we can do? Route 2, is half an hour and you have enough. Does everyone tell you the same? Listening to her makes you want to turn. Lucky we did not case

  • An excellent place to walk and get lost in this beech forest. Good for families as the trails are not difficult. All seasons are different, it is said that autumn is the best one but in summer you'll like to find a place like this to cool down your body.
  • Amazing beech forest over a lava flow.
  • Amazing
  • One of the most popular of Catalonia. Exceptional by the fact of being on a lava flow and at very low altitude. Partial natural reserve within the Natural Park of the volcanic area of la Garrotxa.

  • We walked around the volcanic area in a clockwise direction and then we walked over to la Fageda eventually: was an amazing surprise! Now we thought we had seen beautiful places, we didn't know for sure that the best were yet to come, then we walked into this beech forest whose beauty will not forget ...
