Photographer's Note

The municipality of Santa Pau, with a surface area of 48.80 km located to the south-east of the Plain of Olot at the very centre of the so called Zona Volcanica (volcanic zone) in the heart of the Garrotxa district, is strategically situated in what is, geographically speaking an area where both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic features converge. 81% of the municipality is a protected area and is part of the Nature Reserve of the Volcanic Zone of La Garroxta: this area comprises points of particular interest such as the Santa Margarida Volcano, the Croscat Volcano and the so called volcanic terrain, the beech tree forest of the Fageda den Jord and the Can Batlle waterfall.

From having been little known, it has turned into the one of most visited, most admired town in the region and one which has been praised by all sectors of society. A key factor in this transformation has been the will of the inhabitants of the town, this photo belongs to a garden of one of its inhabitants.
