Cap Roig castle

This medieval castle was built in 1931 by Nicholas Woevodski, a Russian officer who left his country after the 1917 revolution. He and his wife, the British Dorothy Webster, planned every detail of the building's construction and decorated its interiors.

The life and customs of Nicholas and Dorothy in their new residence in the Cap Roig castle in Calella de Palafrugell, brought about some novelties in the local toponomy that still remain today. There's "el camí del rus", or "la banyera de la russa", a small spot by the sea near the castle where Dorothy used to bathe.

This couple was also the driving force behind the creation of the Cap Roig garden, which cover an area of 20 hectares and are home to more than 800 botanical species.
