The Fageda d’en Jordà is a stunning forest of beech trees, which forms part of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, and its landscapes that have been the source of inspiration for many artists will also enchant and captivate all visitors who come here.
The Fageda d'en Jordà is one of the 26 nature reserves that form part of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, extending across the municipalities of Santa Pau, Olot and Les Preses.
It is a stunning forest of beech trees growing on lava flow from the Croscat Volcano and which are to be found at a much lower elevation than usual for this type of tree.
There are several well-signposted routes that take you deeper into the forest, which presents a vibrant display of colours, especially in autumn.
These trees have been the inspiration for many artists, such as the poet Joan Maragall, to whom a monolith has been erected on the entry into one of the routes.
