The most beautiful gardens on the Costa Brava

20.04.2023 Nature Activities in Lloret

The botanical gardens are one of the most romantic places on the Costa Brava. A magical space made up of ornamental plants and flowers, perfect for relaxing and taking a leisurely stroll. The gardens of the Costa Brava produce a unique and intimate atmosphere. Places where the coastal landscape integrates with the picturesque garden landscape, the sea breeze mixes with the sweet fruity aroma of the trees and where the pleasant sound of the sea accompanies that of the leaves in the wind.

Discover three spectacular gardens on the Costa Brava, taking advantage of the approaching European Day of Historic Gardens on April 26.


Gardens of Santa Clotilde, Lloret de Mar

The Santa Clotilde Gardens are considered one of the best Mediterranean botanical gardens in all of Europe. This work of gardening art was designed by the architect Nicolau Rubió i Tudurí in 1919 following the Italian Renaissance model.

They are located on a cliff between Fenals beach and Sa Boadella beach in Lloret de Mar, with impressive views over the Mediterranean Sea. An ideal walk to discover the native Mediterranean flora, observe its sculptures and ponds that give it a magical air of a fairy tale.

Recently, the gardens were chosen as one of the settings for The House of the Dragon, the prequel to Game of Thrones. An easily recognizable space because it appears in the series without any kind of retouching. Check our post “The Gardens of Santa Clotilde, setting for House of the Dragon” to find out more.
