Goals of the REJHIS Association
The European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) is a non-profit association founded by the Town Corporations of Lloret de Mar (Girona) and Aranjuez (Madrid, through the Foundation Aranjuez-Cultural Landscape) and the Laboratory of Heritage, Creativity and Cultural Tourism at the University of Barcelona.
The European Cultural Route Project
The ERHG believes that recognition as a Council of Europe Cultural Route is the best way to acknowledge the historic, artistic and social value of the historic gardens in the member states, especially in the countries that have subscribed the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes.
The European Network of Historic Gardens is open to all the institutions that manage this European Heritage, as well as to all the entities that study, protect, collaborate or disseminate the values of these gardens
Statutes of the ERHG Association
We are an international association, open to the integration of other cities, municipalities, institutions and organizations. We want to promote dialogue and the exchange of good practices, launch pedagogical activities and promote sustainable cultural and tourist activities.
