Lanzarote and its endless charm. This volcanic island never ceases to amaze tourists with every corner filled with surprises and artistic originality. One of these is the Cactus Garden, one of the last works of the Lanzarote artist César Manrique, who managed to recreate a dreamland where you can go around the world by means of this unique plant.

What to see at the Cactus Garden?

The Cactus Garden offers visitors a wonderful experience in an setting where this prickly plant is the star of the show. In total, this botanical centre has around ten thousand specimens of around four hundred species from all over the world, with a particular focus on those from the Americas. 

If you want to pay a visit to this magical place, you need to know that the Cactus Garden is built on top of an old quarry that contained plenty of raw materials and elements that made up the island’s landscape. This contributed to César Manrique’s objective of creating a beautiful masterpiece in the middle of a sea of cactuses. The latter refers to the area of Lanzarote that breeds cochineals.

Windmill in the Cactus Garden

Here you can also find one of the many windmills that are scattered across the Canary Islands, with this particular example one of the best maintained in all of the islands. So make sure to include this windmill into your visit and delight in its splendour.
