The imposing Cap Roig mountain is unmistakable thanks to the reddish-green colour of its pine trees, covered with pines at the top. Above Cap Roig is a Botanical Garden that is well worth a visit. The history of this garden dates back to 1927, when a unique married couple, Nicolai Woevodsky (a Russian exile) and Dorothy Webster (a British aristocrat) bought the property. He was fond of drawing and architecture, and she was interested in archaeology and gardening. After buying the castle building, they created a garden that combines interesting plant species with beautiful panoramic views over this magnificent part of the Costa Brava, especially the Mirador de Les Formigues. Some of the most interesting dives along this stretch of the coastline can be made at the Cap Roig shore. The penya-segats continue vertically below the surface until they reach -12 m, and a small cave opens up on the underwater wall.
