I went there twice and both of the times I enjoyed it. It is a small volcano with 2-3 watchtowers surrounding the crater. This is a very nice place to be your first volcano, like it is an introduction for the bigger ones. It is really worth the visit.

The Officina de Tourismo strongly urged us to hike to the top of Volcà Montsacopa, and despite feeling a little under the weather, we couldn't pass up the chance to get up close and personal with a volcano. The trail is well-tended and accessible with options to climb steps or take the somewhat longer but easier path. We opted for... More

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.

As we were in the area we decided to take a look at one of the extinct volcanoes that are scattered around. Drove into Olot and got a map and some information from the tourist office, who were very helpful. Parked in the municipal cemetery and walked up. There are 2 ways, up to the left is slightly harder, but... More

Very quiet and peaceful place, climbing the volcano offers a nice view of the small town and the surroundings. On top is a small church and the ruin of an old tower, the crater itself is covered by bushes.

A very quiet and peaceful place. Took some time to find it. Had to look up coordinates on Google. Short easy walk to the top.
