La Fageda d'en Jorda, Olot

(500+ reviews on the web)
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. 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.

  • This is a peaceful and quiet beech forest where you can go for a walk or take a seat on a stone and rest. I think it is more beautiful in autumn. Also you can go with your dog.  more »

  • 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!
