Overview

Jardín de Cactus was the last intervention work César Manrique performed in Lanzarote. The artist from Lanzarote could see beyond how run down the ancient rofera was. Roferas were the quarries that raids are taken from to create a very particular home for cactaceae flowers from all over he world. Surrounded by the largest cactus plantation of the island, dedicated to crops of cochineal insect, a product of great financial relevance in Lanzarote in the 19th Century. Jardín de Cactus has around 4,500 specimens of 450 different species, of 13 different families of cactus from the five continents. The green shade of the plants stands out against the blue sky and the dark volcano creating a harmonious explosion of colour that impresses visitors. The only sounds that break the peace and quiet that prevails, are singing birds and boozing insects, enjoying their very own oasis.

Externally, it gives nothing away just a good area to park but inside! There is a wealth of plants, take time to enjoin it all.

You'd wonder how it's possible to be wowed by a collection of cactus plants, visit this place for the answer. Amazing. Very nice outdoor cafe too!

Another Cesar Manrique masterpiece. After visiting his Museums I had high expectations for Jardin de Cactus but this is a pure masterpiece. From the minute you enter you are just blown away with the gardens in front of your eyes. Everything is just perfect and...More

I went there a few years ago and did a round trip on the island, I've enjoyed every minute of it. I definitively recommend it, regardless if you are solo or family/couples.

Visited here as driving past and glad we stopped. Interesting selection of cactus which are named as well as showing country of origin. Well laid out and built on many tiers. Nice water features as well. Coffee shop toilets and shop all on site.

This place is amazing. I’ve never seen so many cactus plants in one place. There are so beautiful and every each one was different. Ticket price ok worth the money. Highly recommend it.

Loved the cactus garden. I think we spent there something like 2-3 hours. Great place to enjoy the variety of plants and also get away from the wind. Very well tended garden and a joy to visit.

A truly remarkable place. The 'must see' of Lanzarote. Even for those with no interest in cacti, gardens or art, a visit here is a must. It stimulates the senses on so many different levels, and is a photographers dream. Shape, form, texture, colour and...More
