Around the year 1920, in this exceptional location on the Costa Brava in the province of Girona, Carlos Faust began creating what is now a stunning botanical garden with more than 4,000 species, dedicated primarily to Mediterranean and sub-tropical flora. It has wonderful collections of cacti and other beautiful plants from arid regions of southern Africa and Central America, as well as plants endemic to Catalonia. The garden has steep slopes and a large lake, as well a long flight of steps leading to the Linnaeus temple, which offers stunning views out over the coast and sea.
