Santa Margarida Volcano & Hermitage
The Santa Margarida Volcano is a volcano in the area of the Garrotxa, Catalonia, Spain. The volcano has a perimeter of 2 kilometers and a height of 682 meters and is part of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park.
The hermitage of Santa Margarida is inside the crater of the volcano. The building was destroyed during the 1428 Catalonia earthquake and rebuilt in 1865.
A study published in 2011 at the Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research indicated that the Santa Margarida and Croscat volcanoes were the product of the same eruption event 11500 years ago, alternating freatomagmatic activity, between water and magma, and magmatic activity.
