Olot

Olot is the administrative centre of La Garrocha district in Girona, Catalonia. The town is populated by 33.725 people (2011 data). Olot owes its popularity to the natural park of the volcanic zone of Garrocha, located on the territory of the district. One of the most beautiful volcanoes in the zone - Montsacopa - is found within the town borders. The perfect shape of the crater, barely deformed by lava eruptions, makes the volcano look like an upside-down mug, hence its name, which loosely translates from Catalan as "Mountains to drink from".

Olot is rich not only in natural beatuty, but has many historic buildings as well, many of which are classified as cultural monuments and are protected by the government.

The parochial church of San Esteban (Parroquia de San Esteban) is located in the centre of town. The first mention of the church dates back to 987, and in 1116 it started to receive members of the parish. The now-existing Moderne facade was built in the 19th century. Another notable structure in Olot is the monastery of Carmen (Claustro del Carmen), built in 1603 by LГЎzaro Cisterna. The School of Arts of Olot (Escuela de Arte de Olot) is based there today.

Olot is a place of action for many well-known festivals and shows, renowned internationally. In July, Olot hosts an international music festival Cornamusam, and in October its famous livestock fair, La Feria de Sant Lluc, kicks into gear - it has been happening in Olot since 1314!

The most anticipated holiday for the city dwellers in Olot is, of course Las Fiestas del Tura, the fiesta mayor of Olot, celebrated on the week of September 8th. For five days, visitors and residents enjoy carnivals, dance performances on central squares, the obligatory performances of Giants and Big-Heads (traditional characters of Catalan celebrations). Fiestas del Tura are among the most famous Spanish holidays on par with San Fermin in Pamplona, Las Fallas in Valencia and Semana Grande in San SebastiГЎn.
