Santa Clotilde Gardens

The Santa Clotilde Gardens in Lloret de mar are set in a natural amphitheatre overlooking the sea. The Santa Clotilde Gardens were designed along Italian Renaissance lines: terraced gardens with ample views of the surrounding area and harmonically arranged native species. This garden is a clear example of the spirit of the Catalan noucentista movement. The balance between space, volume and coulour is set off by certain ornamental elements which form various points of interest.

At the beginning of the XX century, at the surge of Art Noveau, after the universal exhibition at Barcelona, there was a great passion for the design and art of gardens.

The Marquess of Roviralta commissioned this garden to master Nicolau Maria Rubió i Rosich (1888-1962), who in time would become the maximum exponent of Catalan landscape architecture. Even though Rubió had been influenced by master Forestier (Champ-deMars, Parc de la Ciutadella), he also wanted to give the garden a clearly Romantic inspiration from the Italy of the Cinquecento and Seicento.

The garden also consolidates the owner’s wish to become a sort of Italian patron, surrounding himself with walks and exquisite sceneries. Such was his passion that he even had the garden built before his own house. The construction started in 1919.

The garden seems like a mixture of different elements extracted from the Villa Medici, Villa Borghese or maybe even from the Boboli gardens. Florence was the source of inspiration of the moment, impersonated by marble Roman busts and the bronze sirens.

Even though the garden shows a total independence of it’s shapes, pronouncedly sober and straight, all lines converge at points of great natural beauty. Sculptures and terraces look above the sea; cypresses and pine trees frame the sea and rocks creating an intense Mediterranean feeling. Small ponds and fountains with bubbling water fill the air with their freshness.

If you want to keep a good memory of the Costa Brava don’t miss the visit which will feed your senses.

Santa Clotilde is situated in Fenals at just a short walk from the Hotel Savoy and just next to the Sa Boadella Beach. Timetables are 10am to 12 pm and from 17 pm to 20pm in the evening. Mondays closed.
