  • A yellow arrow with a red end, fixed onto a post, contains the names of four closest towns or villages, sorted by distance from shortest to longest, with an average hiking time to reach them indicated as well. Additionally, the post in question has a yellow board with the name of the area and the longitude, latitude and height above sea level.
  • Information boards installed in towns and villages contain maps of the ItinerГ nnia roads for the whole region, a detailed map of the area within the 9 km radius and important phone numbers.

Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park

The volcanic zone of Garrocha (Garrotxa) is found in the eastern Pyrenees, in the district La Garrocha (the administrative center of the district is Olot) in the province of Girona. This volcanic zone has been under the government's protection since 1982, and in 1985 it was declared a natural park.

The territory of the Garrocha park occupies over 12.000 hectares, on which almost 40 extinct volcanoes and 20 spots of solidified basalt lava are scattered. Volcanic cones there are 10 to 60 meters tall and pack 300-500 meters in diameter. The largest Garrotxa volcano, incidentally, also the largest volcano in the Pyrenees, is Croscat, which is 160 meters tall. Croscat is also the youngest, whose last eruption occurred 11 thousand years ago. Another famous volcano of the Garrocha zone is Santa Margarita, in whose crater stands a namesake Romanesque church.

Garrocha has over 1100 types of plants; 65% of the area is covered by oak, beech and alder forests. The beech forest Fageda d'en JordГ  quite literally stands out above the rest: it is located 550 meters above the sea level. Garrocha's fauna includes 49 types of mammals, 192 species of birds, 13 different amphibians, 18 types of reptiles, 9 species of fish and countless invertebrates.

One of the VГ­as Verdes cycling/hiking routes between Olot and Girona, VГ­a verde del Carrilet I, runs through the Garrocha volcanic zone.
