Friends Holiday to Galicia's Camellia Route

Wednesday 7 - 14 March 2018

With a milder, wetter climate than the rest of Spain, the gardens in Galicia have a luxuriant air, accentuated by the fact that many belong to grand country mansions (pazos). Another happy feature of the climate is that camellias thrive here, and in the spring sunshine of February and March they provide welcome splashes of colour, blooming exuberantly in shades of white, pink and red.
We will follow the length of the camellia route, which extends from La Coruña in the north by way of the historic pilgrimage centre of Santiago de Compostela to Vigo in the south. Along the way, we visit a collection of splendid gardens, including the outstanding Castillo de Soutomaior, while enjoying some spring sunshine and the uplifting sight of one of the garden world’s favourite flowering plants in full bloom.
Our tour will be guided by Trevor Edwards, a well-known, award-winning garden designer, writer and broadcaster.
