This is a pleasant green oasis worth exploring but the really interesting thing is the old town stone gate which lies just adjacent and below the square. It is a survivor of the volcanic eruption and shows how much higher the modern town is than...More

Doesn't look much from outside, but as you walk inside the gardens seem to wrap themselves around you & draw you in. Set out on many levels the whole place is a relaxing place to walk round. Unfortunately the old Wine Press is cordoned off...More

The gardens themselves are quite small with lots of steps and different levels. Not suited to people with reduced mobility. Interesting plaques and lovely plants. The plaza itself is also interesting as it is surrounded by houses with typical Canadian style wooden balconies. A lovely...More

Quaint little park in the heart of Garachico within a short walking distance to the fort, natural pools and restaurants and only minutes by foot to a great pizzeria on the main road

This place is just off the main village square and has a very interesting garden attached to it. There appears to be some work still going on to improve it, but it already merits a visit given its history.
