Can Garay .@sawdays #Catalunya #Monochrome #Photography knicksen.com

This is one of the places we stayed in recently on our trip to Catalunya. Hotel Can Garay, a Modernista house built in 1906 in Planes D’Hostoles, near Olot in the Garrotxa Volcanic Park area.

Great food, local wines, excellent accomodation and friendly hosts, plus a good base for walking and exploring further afield. Photos may have been taken too.

Towards The Castle .@AP_MAGAZINE #Catalunya #Monochrome #Photography knicksen.com

I’d recommend a trip to Catalunya. It has a mix of city, sea and mountains, all within a relatively small and easily travelled area. There’s Barcelona to start with, then the Costa Brava, which has some more remote and rugged coastal areas to explore,and not just the busier beach resort areas, plus there’s the Pyrenees and their foothills.
Here’s the view towards the Castle at Planes D’Hostoles, near Olot in the Garrotxa Volcanic Park area.
