Lur Garden

LUR Garden is the garden of almost 20,000 m² that the landscape design studio LUR Paisajistak has created next to its new facilities in Oiartzun (Gipuzkoa).

On an alluvial terrace formed by the watercourse that runs around the entire perimeter of the garden, sixteen different themed spaces have been created to investigate the aesthetic contributions of the extensive Plant Kingdom.

The geometry of an egg, both in plan and in elevation, as in the pruning of the yew trees, is what has directed the entire layout of the garden. The sinuosity of these ovoid shapes is enhanced by the use of more than 1,800 beech trees in the hedges that contain the various themed gardens.

This is the sixth year since the creation of the garden began and it is now, when LUR Garden opens its doors to visitors, that the plantations have reached maturity, allowing visitors to enjoy the different aesthetic plant trials that have been carried out.

In addition to explained in advance, the design of the route joins three essential guidelines:

  • The smuggler: The route passes by mountain ways that they were very important in this activity, especially in the middle of XX Century, not only because of the borderline between France and Spain, but also because there were control points in the interior, in direction to the cities.
  • Markers: Almost all the route to do on foot and the half of the route to do by bike are marked. This provides safety to excursionists. On the places without marks there are specific sign posts.
  • A network of accommodations: The route is organized in stages (7 on foot and 4 or 7 by bike). At the final points of each stage there are located the accommodations, that could be tourist hostels, farmhouses or tourist apartments.
