Garden Tour from Barcelona

Full day garden trip to two wonderful gardens on Costa Brava

On this day tour you get to see two of the most spectacular gardens in Spain: Marimurtra in Blanes and Cap Roig in Portlligat north of Barcelona.

The area north of Barcelona is one of the most beautiful in Spain. Here, close to France's border, you find excellent conditions for gardening and landscaping and two beautiful botanical gardens: Cap Roig and Marimurtra. Both gardens have gorgous location close to the Mediterranean, and it is possible to enjoy the ocean views from both Cap Roig and Marimurtra.

The trip starts with pickup at the group's hotel and then goes to Blanes, where we visit the beautiful Marimurtra garden. Marumurtra is a botanical garden, designed by German businessman Carl Faust (Hadamar, Germany 1874-Blanes 1952) around 1920. The garden has more than 4,000 different plants and flowers. There is particular focus on South African and Central American plants but also plants from Catalonia and the rest of Spain. The garden has a size of around 4 acres and is located right next to the sea.
