Spain: European Route of Historic Gardens: Certification Ceremony held in Lloret de Mar

On 6 April, the certification ceremony of the “European Route of Historic Gardens” as “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” was celebrated in the framework of the General Assembly of the Association. It took place at the premises of the Santa Clotilde gardens in Lloret de Mar, Spain.

The Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (EPA) awarded the certification to the European Route of Historic Gardens at its annual Governing Board meeting in October 2020. Six years ago, the initiative to form the “European Network of Historic Gardens” (ERHG) with the aim of becoming a Cultural Route of the Council of Europe Cultural was born at the Santa Clotilde gardens.

The certification "Cultural Route of the Council of Europe” was handed to Mr. Jaume DULSAT RODRÍGUEZ, President of the Association and Mayor of the city of Llorte de Mar, and the Vice-President, Mr Łukasz PRZYBYLAK by Mr. Stefano DOMINIONI, Executive Secretary of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe and Director of the European Institute of Cultural Routes. The ceremony took place in the presence of Mr Sergio ORTEGA, Ministry of Culture and Sports of Spain (EPA member State), local and national authorities, ERHG Board of Directors members as well as representatives of other Cultural Routes.

As of 2022, the European Route of Historic Gardens brings together historic gardens in 9 European countries in order to promote and raise awareness of historic gardens as architectural and horticultural compositions showing intrinsic artistic and historical values. In addition to their intrinsic artistic and natural values (botanical, landscape, ornamental, etc.), they also have a high historical value, by associating with the centres of political decision and social prestige of different nations and regions.
