La Fageda d'en Jorda, Olot

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.

  • 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.
