DATE: November 13th at 8am

A very complete excursion to discover and enjoy the Vall d’en Bas, in the region of La Garrotxa. Throughout the day we will visit four postcard villages: Sant Privat d’en Bas, Els Hostalets d’en Bas, El Mallol and Sant Esteve d’en Bas; we will walk through the center of Olot, the regional capital; and we will enjoy a pleasant walk through the Montsacopa, the great “urban” volcano of Olot.


The Vall d’en Bas forms a geographical and scenic unit of the first order. Mountain ranges, ridges and crags such as Cabrera dels Llancers, Freixaneda or Puigsacalm surround meadows and forests of beech, holm oak and oak until reaching the plain of Bas, a plain that has one of the most fertile soils in Catalonia, full of streams and brooks that flow through the plain pouring their waters into the Fluvià river.

But the Vall d’en Bas is also history and has been a land of remences. The municipality still preserves the farmhouse where the peasant leader Francesc de Verntallat was born. And in remembrance of the remença movement, every year the Terra de Remences cycling tour is organized, the most popular in Catalonia.

In addition, the Vall d’en Bas has two villages catalogued as historical-artistic sites: the Villa del Mallol, located on a hill and which was for centuries the administrative capital of the viscounty of Bas, and the village of Hostalets d’en Bas, which has its origin in some inns located at the foot of the old royal road that went from Olot to Vic.
