March Foundation Gardens to Reopen

The gardens of the March Foundation in Cala Ratjada are to reopen

The gardens of the March Foundation in Cala Ratjada are to reopen to the public on 11th May. Ravaged by a terrible storm in 2001 the gardens were forced to
close but were officially reopened by the Royal Family last year. Now an initiative by the foundation and the local council, Capdepera, will finally allow public access and surely attract many
visitors.

The house, sa Torre Cega, and its gardens were once the summer retreat of wealthy banker Bartolomé March Servera who spared
no expense in making them possibly the most beautiful in Mallorca with the aid of top landscape gardener, Englishman Russell Page. The 70,000 square metres of garden also have over 40 magnificent
works of modern sculpture dotted around and if that wasn't enough, the views over the sea in the resort are simply breathtaking.

If you didn't already know, the Palau March in Palma which has sculptures by Rodin and Henry Moore on display is also part of the March Foundation. Both here, and the gardens are well worth a
visit.
