Jardín de Cactus

Jardin de Cactus (Carretera General del Norte, Guatiza, Lanzarote) – located 21 minutes (17 km.) northeast of Arrecife, this garden, located in a former quarry, has over 10,000 different plants. Much of this garden is the work of famed local artist César Manrique. Similar attention to detail can be found not just in the planting within the garden itself but also within the structure and colors of some of the species on show, with many displaying incredible complexities and colors on close inspection and stunning flowers at certain times of the year. The plant selection, design and layout was the work of an eminent botanist, Estanislao Gonzales Ferrer, and the collection of both cacti and succulents have been drawn together from the Canary Islands, Madagascar and America.
