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..
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”..
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.
