Fageda d’en Jordà (The Jordan's beech wood, Catalonia)

I have wanted to visit this beech wood for a long time, but the trip somehow always seemed to get postponed. Now, after a brief visit, I can see what has attracted so many others and will go back there again and again.

The forest is unique; it grew over the lava flow from the Croscat volcano and is dotted with small hills of variable sizes, known locally as “tossols.” The high temperature lava flowed over a wetland, evaporating all moisture upon contact. The steam entered the lava, distorting and eventually cracking the partially solidified crust. The result is the varying bulges on the landscape we can see, covered with fragments of basalt.
