To experience a real volcano crater and appreciate the unique landscape of this lovely town. Although my 10 yr old was expecting the real thing this is now a beautiful spot full of nature. Nice view into the bullring too.

It wasn't easy to climb steep slopes of Montsacopa volcano, but at the end we were rewarded with wonderful views over Olot town and surrounding area. There is a restaurant up there if you need to refil your energy before descent.

Very interesting to see the crater of the volcano. After all these years being innactive trees have grown all over it. Excellent views just a walking distance from the city centre.

We walked up early one frosty morning and greatly enjoyed seeing the lovely views from the top. The church of st Francis was closed, but that didn't make a difference to our enjoyment of the the walk.

Walked up to crater to see the site. Lovely walk, interesting story. My son drew 6 volcanoes and we plan to construct a vinegar volcano on Saturday. All very thematic but educational.
