Capital of the Garrotxa area, Olot is famous for its 19th-century school of landscape painters and has several excellent Art Nouveau buildings, including the Casa Solà-Morales, which has a facade by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, architect of Barcelona's Palau de la Música. The Sant Esteve church at the southeastern end of Passeig d'en Blay is famous for its El Greco painting Christ Carrying the Cross (1605).
