Blanes is a natural open-air museum. It has two amazing Mediterranean gardens. Two symbols of the city that you cannot miss. But the natural heritage goes far beyond the romantic gardens because we offer landscapes with a great ecological importance. Relax yourself and discover them little by little.

Jardí Botànic Marimurtra


This natural paradise is called Marimurtra, the botanical garden of the Costa Brava.

It is a privileged place to enjoy the richness of its botanical, architectural, landscape and human heritage. It was declared Cultural Asset of National Interest and it is known for being one of the biggest botanical gardens. A garden consisting of four acres divided into three gardens with different characteristics that host more than 4,000 plant species from five different continents.

Marimurta was created by Carl Faust almost a hundred years ago. He was a german man passionate about the botany who wanted the establishment of an international scientific headquarters in Blanes.

The gardens are open all year round and you’ll find the bus service Garden Open Tours, leaving every 30 minutes from the centre of the town in high season.

Pinya de Rosa Tropical Botanical Garden

This tropical garden has one of the most interesting cactus living collections in Europe. . The garden’s collection is made up of more than 7.000 species from all over the world. The garden was founded by Ferran Riviere de Caralt, a known industrial engineer, who began creating the garden shortly after acquiring the property in 1945. This magic landscape of national interest is considered part of people’s identity in Blanes.
