Discover the Cap Roig Festival experience

The origins of the Cap Roig castle and botanical garden go back to the year 1927, when the Russian coronel Nicolai Woevodsky, a drawing and architecture enthusiast, and his wife, the aristocrat Dorothy Webster, who was a decorator and also an archeology and gardening fan, left their courtesan London life behind to settle themselves and build their dream in this unique spot located in a remarkable setting right by the sea. A place where nature and calm reign.

Nowadays, their ideology and legacy remain alive thanks to the commitment of Obra Social “la Caixa” towards the conservation of the environment and preservation of the scenic and architectural heritage.

Location of the Cap Roig Gardens

Known as one of the most important botanical gardens in the Mediterranean, the most characteristic plant species of the Cap Roig Gardens mix with trees and plants original from five continents and merge right by the shore with the breathtakingly beautiful natural landscape of the Costa Brava.

Located within the municipalities of Palafrugell (10 hectares) and Mont-ras (7 hectares), in the region of Baix Empordà (Girona), the garden provides a unique space due to its singularity. Nature, art, culture, and history come together in this 17-hectares spot that brings together botanical species from all corners of the globe, as well as sculptures from renowned national and international artists. This is why Cap Roig is considered one of the most important botanical gardens in the Mediterranean.
