Garrotxa Volcanic Zone

The volcano Santa Margarita is located in the town of Santa Pau (Garrotxa) and is one of the most iconic volcanoes in the area along with the Croscat and Rocanegra.

To reach the crater must be done on foot. First we take a walk and upwards. The road uphill but you can do with kids without problem. If it has rained better not take strollers for children because the road is muddy.

Erupted 11,000 years ago. It is 700 meters wide and his mouth is now a meadow, has a perimeter of 2,000 meters. In the middle of the plan is the church of Santa Margarita, Romanesque, which gives its name to the volcano. When we got to top the view is incredible…meadow and thought this was, years ago, the mouth of a volcano erupting.
