Costa Brava – Cap Roig

An amazing garden in the Costa Brava near Girona with dramatic views over the ocean – Jardins de Cap Roig – 17 hectares of beauty and home to the annual Cap Roig music festival.

costabrava-caproigBought in 1927 by Russian Colonel Nicolai Woevodsky and his wife, English aristocrat and gardener Dorothy Webster, where they built a castle from the stone quarry on the estate and developed the garden of their dreams with over 1,000 botanical species.  In 1969 they donated the property to the Government for a guarantee that it would be preserved.  Truly beautiful.
