Fabulous valley in La Garrotxa area with ancient villages, meadows and oak forests to explore. Try this superb drive: from Sanat Esteve d'en Bas, turn left for Hostalets and then right at the next bus stop on right for the road to Coll de Condreu. On the top of the hill you'll come to a good restaurant with views around.
After that, continue on the same road to Falgars past farms through a beautiful landscape to the hamlet where you can leave the car and start walking. From the top of a rocky outcrop here you can make out the Pyrenees.
