History and Culture of La Garrotxa
Like the rest of Catalonia, La Garrotxa is a land through which a multitude of different peoples have passed and left their mark. History knows no pauses and so should be seen as a continuum. Yet, it is often easier to study past times if they are divided into periods or ‘eras’. The criteria used to establish such divisions are often highly debatable and a more realistic approach will depend on specific territorial and cultural considerations, which will either temper or reinforce any attempt at periodisation.
