Do you know the Pinya de Rosa Tropical Garden?
The Pinya de Rosa Tropical Garden, located in Blanes, is part of the Architectural Heritage Inventory of Catalonia. It is close to two other green oases: Marimurtra and Santa Clotilde (in Lloret de Mar).
The Pinya de Rosa Tropical Garden is located in the Pinya de Rosa Natural Site of National Interest, which covers an area of some fifty hectares. It allows visitors to observe some 7.000 tropical species, all of them arranged and classified according to their genus.
Over the years, it has acquired great international fame and has become a place of enormous interest for the most eminent botanists in the world. Also, for the tourists who visit our municipality.
Fernando Rivière de Caralt, the creator of the garden
Rivière de Caralt was one of the most renowned industrial engineers in the metallurgical sector of his time. One of his hobbies was cacti and succulent plants, which led him to buy the land to build the garden.
Different professionals from different sectors participated in the whole process, such as:
- Joan Pañella i Bonastre (great friend and botany expert)
- Joan Mirambell (designer)
- Raimon Duran i Reynals (architect)
