The best-known jardí botànic on the Costa Brava, Blanes’ cliff top Mar i Murtra consists of a series of beautiful themed gardens. On a headland 1km northeast of the port lies the Jardí Botànic Mar i Murtra, founded in 1924 by German industrialist Karl Faust on the site of an eighteenth-century garden.You could spend a pleasurable afternoon here wandering on hilly paths amid the flora, looking out over the turquoise sea. The gardens are arranged by theme: there’s a Subtropical Garden, which includes a rambling cactus collection, and a Temperate Garden, featuring bamboo groves and towering Chilean palms.The loveliest is the Mediterranean Garden, full of olives and tamarisks tumbling down to the cliff edge, punctuated with belvederes. Steps from the largest of these climb through an avenue of cypresses to a small square surrounded by orange trees; at its centre is a tiled fountain decorated with Goethe’s poem Where the Oranges Blossom.
