  • As the name tells you, it is a garden of many cacti. I did not know there was so much variety as I’m used to the US southwest cacti growing straight up and the tiny ones you buy for the home...  more »
  • A lovely location and we enjoyed a cup of coffee overlooking the garden. It’s amazing how interesting cacti are. It would be so nice to sit and read a book in these gorgeous surroundings. Check out...  more »
  • Visited here in December 2020 after not being here for almost 30 years, our original photos the cacti were tiny and now they are almost trees, it was fascinating. Was very quiet and peaceful and we.....  more »
  • A great visit if you like cacti, or even if you don’t actually. The place hosts (what seems to be) hundreds of species and features a viewpoint, a souvenir shop and a caffe/restaurant. The only thing we were missing, were some explanations on the different varieties of cacti, which would make the visit more interesting. You can easily come by car, or bus as there is a stop in front.
  • A nice hour spent here walking amongst the wide array of cactuses. A calm experience, but I imagine it can get busy. Possibly a good thing to do if he weather isn’t great, although I imagine it could get quite busy. The coffee shop/cafeteria was nice with a great view of the gardens. (Quite a lot of steps!)
  • Great setting. Loved the display of cacti. The cafe is pretty good too with a lovely view over the whole garden. Best time to visit seemed to be around lunchtime when most coach parties had departed and there were a lot less people.
  • If you like plants you will like here. Plenty of different types of cactus to look at. There is a restaurant at one side of the garden, there is also a windmill above it where you can get a good view of not just he garden but the whole mountainous area behind. Adult tickets are 5.80 each. Parking is good.
  • This place is UNREAL! Absolutely amazing..It is so so beautiful that your breath will be taken away! A nature/flower lover or not, you will definitely fall in love with the place! Hope with these photos you can actually see/feel this beauty!
