  • The volcano is located just 20 minutes from the city. A walk to do it without haste can ascend on one side stairs and another way by ramp. The crater is well-defined and on the rise of Olot views are very good. Recommended tour to make it calmly and above all in the summer.

  • We saw several volcanoes, garrotxa area is spectacular, this is the most comfortable and close, it amounts to little more than 20 minutes if you leave the car in the parking lot of the cemetery, beautiful views, amazing have so many volcanoes in Spain a visit must.

  • We climbed down the stairs. Good exercise with the reward of the views seen from above. We visited outside the Hermitage of Sant Francesc, curious for being at the top of the volcano and to be part of the fortified area. You can also enter in the two watchtowers to better see the landscape. Down at the crater one of the 3 roads also are welcome. It is all covered with vegetation and flowers. Once travel the crater and all the top, we went down the ramp paved for prams, (better electric wheelchair because the ramp is long) and for anyone who wants to access the volcano by it. Good exercise and free.

  • Since the Centre is accessed a stroll of about 2 km. Travel form can be circular can be reached by stairs from Earth and wood and down a smooth ramp. From its top you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city and its surroundings, as well as the circular crater of the volcano.

  • A half hour's drive from the bottom. A beautiful but somewhat neglected monastery.

  • The truth which is a very pleasant experience with easy access for anyone even disabled. Views of Olot and la Garrotxa are spectacular. And the experience of walking through the crater of a volcano
