Castell de Cap Roig

Cap Roig Castle
In 1927,the Russian Colonel Woevodsky and the English aristocrat and decorator Dorothy Webster bought the land of this estate in Cap Roig where they began building a castle and a magnificent park. The works continued until 1974. The garden runs down in terraces from the castle to the sea. The first ones (Nunsí Terraces, El Bassin Terrace, Loversí Garden) are connected by the Cypresses Staircase, and have a marked architectural character. From there on, the paths descend gently towards the coast. This area is home to the Spring Garden, Cactus Garden and Geranium Walk with stunning flowering seasons.
