For only 3 euro's you can walk around en see this beautiful garden. I loved it. :) The story behind this garden is what it makes even more special.

The gardens are peaceful but not what you would expect. Lots of different plants I've never seen before, so that was cool. The big dragon tree was amazing. Be aware its 5euro each to get in but this goes towards making sure the dragon tree is preserved

These gardens are one of the oldest in the world as they were established in 1788. The entrance fee is reasonable. The gardens are peaceful, lush, green and have plants from all over the world. We were pleased to see some from South Africa! The area is not very big so you can get around in a fairly short time.... More

I highly recommend these gardens, which at an entry fee of 3 Euros, is an absolute steal! Walking in the sunshine and shade, admiring a host of different species, is a wonderful way to ease back and relax! It is also brilliant for keen photographers and, if you are like me, a photographer's mate, lots of seats and benches to... More

This is quite a small botanical garden situated on quite a steep road out of town. Following advice from another review we took a taxi up (around €5) & walked back down into town. Beautiful flowers & plants although sadly no cafe although there are several in the local vicinity. Well worth a visit at €3 per person for entry.

We visited early on a beautiful day, so the gardens were relatively empty. This is a magic place if you love sub tropical / tropical plants. At three Euros it has to be the best value on Tenerife. I would guess that the area of the gardens would be equivalent to maybe three football pitches, not that I'm an expert.... More
