Castellfollit de la Roca
Altitude: 296 m
Castellfollit of the Rock is a municipality in the district of La Garrotxa, and it is one of the smallest towns in Catalonia, with an area of ??about 700m <sup2< sup=""> and a population of 1000 inhabitants. The population is part of the Natural Park of the Volcanic Area of La Garrotxa.
The image we Castellfollit of the Rock is spectacular as the village is situated at 296 meters above basaltic cliff (the Cinglera Castellfollit) 50 meters high formed by the erosive action of the rivers Fluvia and Toronell volcanic debris over thousands of years ago. From the road, just before, we can see a fantastic view of the cliffs and the population, it is not unusual to find images and pictures of the villa throughout Catalonia and abroad.
Inside the house there's old town, a must even see its medieval narrow streets built mostly of volcanic rocks. An excursion to the end of the cliff, where the Plaza Josep Pla, a viewpoint from which to contemplate the valley of the two rivers. Another option to look at the horizon is up to the bell tower of the church of San Salvador in front of the square, is a thirteenth-century Renaissance building and square that was destroyed during the Civil War and today is a center culture.
A little further away from the old town we found the bell dedicated to San Roque with a clock from 1925 that was built by a monarch of La Garrotxa in gratitude for the support they gave the people to become member of the Parliament.
As a curious comment that was in Castellfollit of the Rock where the painter Josep Berga Boix began his career in the late fourteenth century. Many of his works were destroyed when the church was burned during the Civil War.
