Historic Gardens
and the present context of COVID-19

Time for reflection and action

 

Gardens with memory, legacy of European identity, narrators of our history.
A European journey towards understanding and care.

Goals of the REJHIS Association

The European Route of Historic Gardens (REJHIS) 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. It aims to unite the largest possible number of managing bodies of Historic Gardens in Europe, with the objectives first of forming a stable network and second of obtaining recognition as a Council of Europe Cultural Route for this historic artistic and natural heritage..

OUR GOALS

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. Therefore, the ERHG invites all the Historic Gardens in the member states currently open to public visits, for either social-cultural or sustainable tourism uses, to join this network and its project of a European Cultural Route called “European Route of Historic Gardens”..

MORE INFO

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

 

What is a
Historic Garden?

The 1981 Florence Charter, adopted by ICOMOS in 1982, defined a Historic Garden as “an architectural and horticultural composition of interest to the public from the historical or artistic point of view. As such, it is to be considered as a monument.
