    It is the last volcano that was formed in Olot. It exploded about 100,000 years ago and its rounded crater is the product of a stombolic eruption that is not explosive first and of a more explosive (flame retardant). It emitted a modest stream of lava towards the northwest (the Morrot), that is cut by the river of Riudaura. Its projections (pyroclasts and ashes) cover much of the Olot plain. This crater is unique in the Natural Park of the Volcanic Zone of La Garrotxa that has not been deformed by any wash lava at the end of the eruption.

    Of the grederes on the south and southwest slopes, a large part of the material was obtained, with which several of the city's constructions were made, until they were closed in the sixties. Recently they have been restored as museum spaces.

    During the French occupation of 1812 the hermitage was walled, and the two defensive towers still retained were built. The path of the Viacrucis runs from the cemetery of Olot and around the crater there is a circular walk with birches and benches that is a magnificent viewpoint of Olot and its surroundings.

    After Amer an indicator takes us to the "Font Picant" where we can drink and take a little of this volcanic water. Back to the carrilet route you will cross Les Planes d'Hostoles, the last station before reaching Sant Feliu de Pallerols where the carrilet road shares the route with a steeply steep road until reaching the highest point: "El Coll d 'in Bas "(620m). From then on, it descends quickly to La Vall d'en Bas along the same road. Once down, the carrilet road is recovered, which goes into the field in the direction of Les Preses down a slight slope to Olot, capital of the Garrotxa and important volcanic area of ​​inescapable visit.
