When you reach the village, past the traffic lights (there is only one), continue straight to the roundabout and then take the first turn to the left. Turn left again after passing a big modern gray building and continue to the end, where you will turn right, entering a boulevard lined with linden trees. You can park on the side of that road around 30 meters in. A little further down, you will find the street Carrer d'Olot (note: not to be confused with the “carretera” or road of Olot, which is a national road). The blue doorway is on the right, number 8.
