Cap Roig Festival 2017

History

DISCOVER THE EXPERIENCE OF CAP ROIG FESTIVAL.
The origins of the Cap Roig’ Castle and its Botanical Gardens date back to 1927, when Russian Colonel Nicolai Woevodsky, who was keen on drawing and architecture, and his wife, the English aristocrat Dorothy Webster, decorator and amateur archeologist and gardening, left behind her court life in London to settle down and make true her fondest dream in this unique place located in a special enclave by the sea. A place prevailing in nature and calm.

Currently, the doctrine and its legacy are remaining alive thanks to the commitment of the Obra Social ”la Caixa” to the conservation of the environment and the preservation of landscape and architectural heritage.

LOCATION OF THE CAP ROIG GARDENS

Considered one of the best botanic gardens in the Mediterranean, where the region’s most characteristic plant species mix with trees and plants from every continent and blend, on the edge of the sea, with the beautiful natural landscape of the Costa Brava.

Located between the municipal areas of Palafrugell (10 hectares) and Mont-ras (7 hectares) in the county of Baix Empordà (Girona), the gardens are a unique space. Nature, art, culture and history come together in this 17-hectare enclave home to over a thousand plant species from all over the world, as well as sculptures by renowned national and international artists. All of this makes Cap Roig one of the most highly valued botanic gardens in the Mediterranean.
