Castellfollit de la Roca

A unique landscape


Castellfollit de la Roca is one of the most picturesque villages in Catalonia. It is set between the Fluviá and Toronell Rivers. Its church and houses cling to the top of a spectacular basalt rock face, and this has become one of the most widely used images of the region. 

The old part of the village dates from the Middle Ages and is made up of squares, narrow streets and shady corners. The Josep Pla square-viewpoint is right on the edge of the cliff and offers stunning views. Its most noteworthy and beautiful locations are Sant Salvador Church, which dates from the 13th century, and, above all, the village's natural surroundings. An outing to the Cós Sanctuary is also highly recommended. Castellfollit is alongside the Garrotxa Volcanic Area Nature Reserve, a protected area with stunning landscapes.
