Hortus Conclusus

We are rather spoilt for the choice of beautiful gardens, here in Mallorca.

One such jewel is the garden of Sa Bassa Blanca, owned by the Fundación Yannick y Ben Jacober, near the Aucanada Golf course, in Port d’Alcúdia. The walled garden is converted into a Hortus Conclusus, inspired by the mediaeval concept of a pleasure garden. Over 100 types of roses can be admired, along with irises, daffodils, violets, columbines, violas, and pinks, plus a herbarium with medicinal plants and culinary herbs.

A sheer delight, if you ask me, especially now during the month of May when the roses are in their fullest bloom.

The garden can be visited Wednesday to Saturday, by appointment only. Admission fee is 9 € or 12 €, depending on how much you want to see. Telephone 971.549.880 for reservations. There is also a day of Open Doors every Tuesday, 09h30-12h30 and 14h30-17h30, admission free. There is a sculpture garden, too, with nice bits of art by the owners, Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober, including an impressive stone circle, inspired by ancient megaliths
