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.

Quite spectacular to walk round though not very extensive, takes maybe an hour to wander round. Very little information about the plants though many have name & locale signs and it should technically be called Jardin de Succulents as many of the plants aren't members...More

Cactus garden arranged in a nice volcanic landscape, well organized and interesting to explore regardless of age. Even small kids will love it. And there is also a windmill inside the garden where you can see how it actually worked.

Our kids really enjoyed visiting this place. Wonderful photo opportunities with the old mill and quirky architectural features as well as the cacti themselves.

Not that expensive to enter and holds a vast number of different cacti. The area is not that big so it is a great stop even if you are short of time.

One of those wonderful places in Lanzarote touched by César Manrique. Beautiful cactus garden - not only for those interested in botany.
