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.
