In a Little while starts one of the most peculiar events in Spain, the Festival Cap Roig because unlike other festivals, this one takes place is a dream landscape. The open air auditorium at the botanic garden in Cap Roig, in the Costa Brava, is a privileged place for those that love nature, the sea and peace.
Also, you can breathe history since the Cap Roig’s castle and botanic garden origins go back to 1927, when a Russian coronel named Nicolai Woevodsky, an architecture enthusiast, and his wife, the English aristocrat Dorothy Webster, decorator and gardening enthusiast, decided to leave behind their life in London to build their dream house on a cliff from where can be seen the best views of the Costa Brava.

The program along these days will delight us with other contemporary artists, renowned worldwide. The Catalan pop music band, Manel, will also be present in this festival, presenting its last record, “Atletes, baixin de l’escenari”.
