Botanical Gardens in Costa Brava
Marimurtra Botanical Garden
The botanical garden Marimurtra, is located on the southeast slope of the mountain of Sant Joan in Blanes, on the cliffs. This garden was created in 1921 by the German scientist Karl Faust. A few years later, Marimurtra became one of the most important biology stations of the Mediterranean. The Marimurtra Botanical Garden brings together not only indigenous plants and trees, but plant species from all over the world such as Chilean palms and bamboo or some special trees from Africa and Mexico, among others.
It is an ideal place to visit with family and enjoy more than the natural spectacle. You can discover the fantastic landscapes hidden within the Costa Brava
Botanical garden “Pinya de Rosa”
A few minutes driving from the campsite you can find the popular Botanical Garden “Pinya de Rosa”. Ferran Rivière de Caralt created it in 1954, this botanical garden that has the peculiarity of having adapted plant species that are characteristic of the tropics to the Mediterranean environment . Plants and trees, such as cacti, opuntia or aloes coexist in a rich context in autochthonous vegetation.
Santa Clotilde Gardens
A few kilometers from the Camping Resort Els Pins you can find, in a landscape of great beauty, on top of a cliff with stunning views over the sea, the Gardens of Santa Clotilde in Lloret de Mar. This botanical garden, designed in 1919 by Nicolau Maria Rubió i Tudurí, is characteristic due to the clear Italian influence and the formal coherence that exists between it and the architectural work of the surroundings.
The gardens of Santa Clotilde gather various marble sculptures and they are characterized by the absence of flowers, which clearly contrasts with the great variety of plants.
