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.

A large cactus garden with at most the type of species you are looking at. Not very informative. Price ok, nice cafe and views from the mill.

We were worried this might be a tacky tourist draw but how wrong we were. The setting for this extraordinary collection of cacti, sourced worldwide, was what made it - in circular tiers in what may have been an old quarry. Manrique's inspired sense design...More
