Our story

The Botanical garden was created in the 1970’s by a passionate gardener, originally from the village of Sagra. He collected plants and seeds during his travels around the globe. Over the years, he gave his Hortus Botanicus free rein to grow in the direction she chose, while he studied her with fascination. As heirs of his legacy, we work day after day to maintain and preserve this unique ecosystem, which once started as a gardener’s dream.

"As the daughter and granddaughter of a winegrower, I am heartily attached to the earth. After many urban years, I wanted to return to my roots, to get back to basics. My meeting with Victor, artist and sailor, took us to the Mediterranean in search of our paradise. It was on board of his catamaran that we landed on the coast of the Costa Blanca. The discovery of the Botanico was decisive for us. Today more than ever we must listen to mother nature. Our intention is to take care of this Garden of Eden for the benefit of our guests."
