“Fantastically well kept and beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This Botanic Garden is well worth a visit - from there you have beautiful views over the coast and inland. The garden as such is extremely well kept - a pleasure to visit.

Experience these gardens right on the coast. During the summer they host special concerts well worth visiting.

“Wonderful gardens, unjaded staff member!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We walked along the coastal path from Calella de Parafrugell as far as El Golfet beach and then followed the signs to the gardens. If you do the same, at the point you hit the road, follow the traffic signs to the gardens rather than follow the GR92 path as it is much nearer and you wont be trying to creep in by some back entrance like we did! On buying a ticket you get a little brochure which gives you a nice route to follow around the 22 different gardens and terraces. Each have a new theme, but our favourite was the cacti garden which was quite extensive and had wonderful vistas out over the sea. I would not recommend taking anyone who can't walk very far, unless they are happy to do just a small part of the garden and then find a seat whilst you do the rest - it is quite hilly and would be a lengthy walk for non walkers, especially in the heat. There are several toilets, but no cafe, just a drinks and snack machine outside the entrance. In the sumer they have an outstanding musical festival here. In 2012 some of the people playing were Bob Dylan, Kiri te Kanawa and Simple MInds so you get the calibre! Must give a mention to the wonderful lady selling tickets who greeted us like long lost friends and was happy to try and chat. Her English was not perfect, but it was much better than our Spanish. Excellent value for 6 euros each as we spent four hours there! In the summer months a small land train goes there from the seafront at Calella de Parafrugell for around 3 euros for the 15 minute ride, but times are limited. I would suggest walking in one direction only and getting a ride back!
