In memory of Walter Benjamín (Berlin 1892 - Portbou 1940) and of the Europeans in exile from 1933 to 1945, Dani Karavan created the Memorial “Passagen”. Using abstract shapes and the natural roughness of the Catalan Pyrenees, the artist inscribed a sign on the landscape that enables one to come closer to the situation of existential threat experienced by the emigrants of the 20th century that, at the same time, projects into the future a cry for tolerance and comprehension beyond borders. A permanent exhibition at the Casa Herrero Civil Centre. Guided trip (Líster route) Portbou-Banyuls. Portbou Mountain.

Sculptures of Xicu Cabanyes

It would not be out of place to classify Xicu Cabanyes as an unusual artist and his work as being out of the ordinary. In the field of art, in which it is so hard to find creators with fresh ideas or who have something new to say, it is refreshing that there is a unique artist (as Cirici Pellicer described him) who, above all thanks to Can Ginebreda Forest, offers us the gift of an unforgettable experience: art and life, nature and artifice in a unique combination.

The use of forests or parks as a site for works of art, particularly sculptures, is not unusual in itself: we can recall other experiences. although conceptually far-removed, such as those of Bomarzo or the Kroner-Müller park in Holland.

However, neither of these projects can be considered similar to that of Can Ginebreda Forest, due to the vital, personal intensity of the experience and its overall flexible nature.

This forest, popularly known as “Xicu’s Forest”, is located in the municipality of Porqueres, some six kilometres from Banyoles, on the road to Olot via Santa Pau. It consists of around 40,000 m2 of typically Mediterranean forest, with oaks, holm oaks, pines, junipers, arbutus berries, holly, hawthorns… and sculptures!

This wonderful garden was landscaped in a setting of great beauty on top of a cliff with breath-taking views over the sea, and it is a fine specimen of the spirit that animated the Noucentista movement in Catalonia - an early twentieth-century movement for intellectual and aesthetic renewal that found a distinguished spokesman in the writer Eugeni d'Ors.

The Santa Clotilde gardens were designed in the manner of the dainty yet austere gardens of the Italian Renaissance by Nicolau Rubió i Tuduri at the age of twenty-eight, when he was still brimming over with admiration for his master in the art of landscape gardening, Forestier.

In these gardens, Rubió ignored Forestier's teachings with their Spanish-Arabic slant mixed up with images of the French garden, as he had seen when working with Forestier on the Montjuïc gardens, and instead sought to recover the spirit of the Italian Renaissance as the essence of modernity. A new bourgeoisie was then emerging, looking back nostalgically on the prestige enjoyed by patrons of the arts during the Renaissance.
