Main entrance to the Volcano Museum

If we could travel back through time, we would be able to watch volcanoes erupt in the Garrotxa region. Although the volcanic eruptions were destructive natural phenomena at the time, in hindsight we can see how they created a number of important changes in the landscape of the Olot valleys, which could be seen as natural resources left behind by the volcanoes. The valleys in the volcanic area have the richest soil in the region, and they are where the majority of the population lives.

The Volcano Museum has a permanent exhibition that focuses on the physical characteristics of the Garrotxa region, looking at the one hand, on the seismic phenomena, and the main ecosystems in the region on the other.

We recommend visiting the Museum to understand the volcanic area in the Garrotxa region, with the understanding that the true natural history museum in Garrotxa is nature itself.
