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.

What a place! A beautiful garden, so stylish and incredible design, a Manriques treasure. Just perfect for a stroll, we spent a couple of hours here including a nice coffee. The variety and beauty of the plants is breathtaking.

Beautiful place for a quiet stroll and a relaxed coffee. Like all Cesar Manrique's designs, this garden sits gently into the landscape and works beautifully with its surroundings. It's a simple attraction, there's nothing to 'do' as such; this is just a place to walk...More

A great variety of cactuses in a wonderful garden. Really nice to see both really big and really small cactuses; great for wandering around in the sun.

A disused coal quarry has been converted into Cactus GArden! Really beautiful and inspiring too. A must visit!

Well presented and protected from the wind. Many different cacti varieties from around the world. Well worth a walk around. But get your ticket in a package deal with other attractions in order to save a few EURO.

The Jardin de Cactus is pretty impressive for how small a space it is. It's a bowl (away from the wind!) with terraces going down in lots of different paths and nooks. It has a stunning array of cacti from blooming to fruit bearing, barrel,...More
