Our programme will include comprehensive excursions as well as free time to relax from the comfort of the stunning, historic Paradors and appreciate the beautiful green scenery of Galicia.
We will be joined by horticultural expert Rosemary Legrand, who will provide talks and briefings during the week and accompany us on excursions.
We have timed our visit to coincide with the spring sunshine of March when the camellias are in bloom providing a welcome splash of colour in shades of white, pink and red against the backdrop of this pretty and relatively unexplored corner of North West Spain.
Galicia boasts the perfect conditions for the cultivation of camellias and is currently home to nearly 8000 varieties of this beautiful and enigmatic flower.
Thought to have been brought from the East by Portuguese sailors, they were originally planted in the gardens of the grand country mansions, known as ‘pazos’, which were built by noble families in the 17th and 18th centuries and are typical of this region.
