Garden Destination: Pedreres de s’Hostal Minorca, Spain

Pruned has an excellent post about Pedreres de s’Hostal on the island of Minorca Spain.  The site is a stone quarry that closed for use in 1994 but is now being transformed into a heritage park.  It is an awe inspiring place and in the spirit of stonecutters’ tradition – orchards and vegetable gardens are being cultivated in the disused quarries and the whole place is being designed as an arboretum for native Minorcan plants.

The conversion has made it a popular tourist site, as well as a spectacular concert setting and special events location. For more information about visiting, check out the Líthica website.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
