Well, now … a little history

The village is situated on a basalt crag, which is around 1 km in length and 50 metres high. Originally, thousands upon thousands of years ago, lava flowed from volcanic eruptions, and then the erosive action of the two rivers formed the crag where the village lies today.

The picturesque village, and the unique landscape that surrounds it, should really be seen if you are within reach. There is one place where you can actually stay, which has only 16 rooms. If you decide to visit during the summertime, there are areas for children to play within the village, and also a municipal swimming pool is open to the public.

If you are either flying into or staying in the lovely city of Girona, then this is 47 km away. If you decide to do the Dali Triangle, then at some stage you will be going to Figueres, which is 37 km. The delightful medieval and modern town of Olot is only 7 km away and is a great base to explore the many wonders of the Garrotxa Nature Reserve. The buzzing city of Barcelona is 147 km away.

What to see in Castellfollit de la Roca

  • Sanctuary del Cós in Montagut – if you enjoy outdoor walking then embark on this 8km round-trip journey to the nearby Sanctuary del Cós in the neighbouring village of Montagut. The route has a number of scenic points along the way offering spectacular vistas of both Castellfollit de la Roca and the surrounding La Garrotxa volcanic area.
  • The Old Town – dating back to the Middle Ages, the old town is composed of a small network of narrow roads and small squares, many of which are made using the volcanic rock found in the area. Strolling along the streets of the old town, the sense of closeness and proximity is such that you could forget you were just metres from a sheer drop.
  • Soak up the view – if the view of the town is impressive, so too is the view you can enjoy from standing at the very end of Castellfollit de la Roca. Not for the faint-hearted, the 160 metre sheer drop which stands at the end of the village opens up onto the rivers beneath and the village commands some breathtaking views of the valley down below.
